Film: Dirty Dancing
We're going straight back to the summer of '87 with this classic movie of rebellion and romance and learning to dance! Starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, this highly acclaimed film takes place in 1963. When "Baby" (Grey) goes off to a summer resort in the Catskills with her conservative family, she finds what she least expected when she meets talented but brooding dance instructor Johnny (Swayze). Come have "the time of your life" and feel free to sing and move along to this great soundtrack!
Hosted by the Friends of Rockland Library; as always, we'll be giving away some free books after the film!
