‘Dirty Dancing’ is 4th of July Drive-In Offering

As a 4th of July offering, The Remarkable Theater will be showing “Dirty Dancing” at its drive-in on the Imperial Avenue Parking lot.

The classic summer romance/dance film will begin at 8:45 p.m. — the lot opens at 7:45. Pre-film content begins at 8:15 p.m.

Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey and Jerry Orbach, the 1987 film was a huge surprise hit. The film’s theme song “(I’ve had) The Time of my Life” won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Grammy Award.

When the film premiered The New York Times described the film as “a metaphor for America in the summer of 1963 — orderly, prosperous, bursting with good intentions, a sort of Yiddish-inflected Camelot.”

The film was also the first movie to ever sell over a million copies on VHS.

Tickets — $50 per car — go on sale today at noon on the Remarkable Theater website http://www.remarkabletheater.org.
