Member Picks: Dirty Dancing
Nobody puts this film in the corner – it’s back on the big screen for a Member-exclusive screening.
Dir Emile Ardolino
With Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes
There’s romance, dancing and heartache as 17-year-old Baby falls for dance instructor Johnny Castle while on a family holiday in the Catskills. An instant fan favourite, and a now a cult hit, Dirty Dancing was showered with awards for ‘(I’ve had) the Time of My Life’ and still has one of the best movie soundtracks around.
‘Feminism, heroism, and romance all in one tremendous fairy tale package. With dancing. And soul music’ -
Andrew Ormerod, BFI Member
