Experience one of the most iconic films of the modern era, back on the Big Screen in 45 speaker surround-sound!

 

While spending the summer in the Catskills with her family, an innocent young woman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor.

Relations between the two main stars varied throughout production. They had already had trouble getting along in their previous project, Red Dawn (1984), and worked things out enough to have an extremely positive screen-test, but that initial cooperation soon faded, and they were soon "facing off" before every scene. There was concern among the production staff that the animosity between the two stars would endanger the filming of the love scenes. To address this, Eleanor Bergstein and Emile Ardolino forced the stars to re-watch their initial screen-tests, the ones with the "breathtaking" chemistry. This had the desired effect, and Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey were able to return to the film with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

 

In an interview with AFI, Swayze explained why he thought Dirty Dancing endured for so long. "It's got so much heart, to me," he said. "It's not about the sensuality; it's really about people trying to find themselves, this young dance instructor feeling like he's nothing but a product, and this young girl trying to find out who she is in a society of restrictions when she has such an amazing take on things."

 

The lake at the hotel at Mountain Lake lodge dried in 2002 and has been dry ever since. If you visit the lake today you will see a stone in memory of Patrick Swayze.
