“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

Get ready for Arts Whistler’s next addition to The People’s Film series! This time, the Arts Whistler team has decided to go “dealer’s choice”, to bring you a classic summer favorite with “Dirty Dancing” on June 19th.

“Dirty Dancing” takes you back to the summer of 1963, where the spirited Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the suave dance instructor Johnny Castle at a vacation resort – drama and controversy ensue. With unforgettable dance sequences, a heartwarming romance, and a soundtrack that defined a generation, this film continues to capture hearts and influence karaoke song choices.

Start your summer right! Relive the magic of “Dirty Dancing” on June 19th and get ready to have the time of your life.

The film’s signature cocktail “I Carried a Watermelon” (vodka, watermelon juice and a gummy watermelon treat to garnish) is only available through pre-order when purchasing tickets online.
