Do the mambo. Fall in love. Carry a watermelon.
That’s right, it’s your time to step into the scenes of the cult movie that’s close to our hearts, Dirty Dancing. That clever bunch at Future Cinema has picked one of our most watched movies for their next innovative and interactive experience. This is cinema, but not as you know it.
The UK’s largest outdoor film and dance event will be taking over a secret East London location for one weekend only to reimagine the iconic ’87 classic in the flesh. Last year, they revived Grease to an audience of 9,000 T-Birds and Pink Ladies where mass sing alongs, cheerleaders and fun fairs all unraveled before our awestruck eyes. You can be sure with a sensation like Dirty Dancing there’ll be no expense spared to create a holiday camp just like Kellerman’s and an atmosphere just as exciting.
Whether you were seduced by the tunes – who hasn’t swooned over Time Of My Life? – or by Patrick Swayze’s hips, there’s surely no place to declare your love for the cheesetastic-tear-jerker of a classic. Don’t forget you have to get into the part – the movie may be set in the ‘60s but keep it simple with inspiration from Baby’s leotards, waist-hugging dresses and those all important high waisted jeans.
What are you waiting for? Snap up those tickets and start practicing ‘that lift’ now!
