Hey guys, Jana here,
Just another few weeks until you can get your hands on the spectacular 30th Anniversary Edition of ‘Dirty Dancing‘. February 7th will see the release of this special edition available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD in a fantastic Limited Collector’s Edition Box Set.
In addition to the all new bonus material the box set will contain, you can see the story on big screens once again on January 29 and February 1, 2017 through Fathom Events.
The film stars Jennifer Grey as Baby and Patrick Swayze as Johnny, the pair begins as polar opposites in, she’s a spoiled rich girl and he’s the bad boy who grew up on the streets. It’s 1963 and Johnny works as a dancer at a resort in the Catskill Mountains where Baby’s family goes to spend the summer. Circumstances lead to Baby drifting into Johnny’s world several times and the temperature begins to rise. Little do they know this summer will change both of their lives forever. All the usual emotions bubble to the surface surrounded by an amazing soundtrack of danceable hits.
The supporting cast shines just as brightly as the leads do in this iconic film that stands the test of time. Jerry Orbach (‘Law and Order‘) is Baby’s father Jake, Kelly Bishop (‘Gilmore Girls‘) is her mother, Marjorie and Jane Brucker is Baby’s sister Lisa.
