You’ll have the time of your life when this summertime classic returns to the big screen! Baby (Jennifer Grey) 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, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer. Featuring a great soundtrack of golden oldies and 80s favorites (now considered golden oldies), this fan favorite costars Jerry Orbach (Law & Order) and Cynthia Rhodes.
