Dirty Dancing at the Silver Screen Drive-in

September 25 8:00 to 9:40 pm

Don’t miss our final Silver Screen Drive-in of the year of “Dirty Dancing” on Saturday, September 25 at 8:00 pm!

The music. The dancing. Patrick Swayze at his finest! “Dirty Dancing” has it all!

Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor, Johnny Castle.

It’s 1963 and Baby is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she's disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around when the resort's dance instructor, Johnny, enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. But Baby's father forbids her from seeing Johnny, and he gets fired from his job, but nothing is going to stop them performing the last big dance of the summer.
