In celebration of its 30th anniversary, “Dirty Dancing” will return to more than 550 select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, Jan. 29 and Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m., courtesy of Fathom Events and Lionsgate. The screening will include an all-new tribute to the classic film with celebrity interviews.
The beloved film, starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in their most iconic roles, created a worldwide box-office sensation in 1987, generating over $213 million. “Dirty Dancing” captured hearts worldwide and took home the Best Original Song Oscar for “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”
“Dirty Dancing is one of those really rare films that feels just as fresh and fun as it did the first time you saw it,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events vice president of studio relations, adding, “As an Eighties classic set in the Sixties, it’s a double-dose of cinematic nostalgia and we couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Baby and Johnny back to the silver screen.”
Participating movie theaters in our neck of the woods include AMC Loews Stony Brook 17, Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas and Island 16 Cinema de Lux in Holtsville. For more information, visit www.fathomevents.com.
