The Hope College Knickerbocker Theatre film series returns after over a one-year absence with a summer “One Night Only” series, featuring four films every Monday from July 26 to August 16 at 7:30 p.m. The series will feature “Gidget,” “American Graffiti,” “Dirty Dancing” and “The Sandlot.”
The series was chosen to provide light-hearted summer entertainment that offer both fun and hope in these challenging times.
“Dirty Dancing” continues the series on August 9. The 1987 romantic drama stars Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is disappointed when her summer plans land her at a resort in the Catskills with her parents. However, her summer turns around when she meets the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), and he enlists Baby as his new dance partner. Despite Baby’s father's disapproval, the two fall in love, and she sets her eyes on helping him perform the last big dance of the summer.
