Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) and Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) work on their moves in “Dirty Dancing.”

Cinemark screens 1987 romantic classic

The classic dance movie Dirty Dancing was released in 1987 — and set the late Patrick Swayze’s star on the rise. The coming-of-age story retells Romeo and Juliet as it follows Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) as her inner ballroom dancer and romantic being are awakened by a working-class guy her father doesn’t appreciate.

Baby and her dance-teacher-turned-first-love, Johnny Castle (Swayze), practice for the big talent show. And together, they learn that you can cross the lines of class if you have a little tango in your hips. It won’t be until the big show that Johnny and Baby can answer the big question: Will Baby be able to nail the big lift?

Rated PG-13, 100 minutes. The film concludes Cinemark’s summer series, with screenings at 2 p.m. Sunday, then at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, at Denton’s Cinemark 14, 2825 Wind River Lane. Matinee tickets cost $6.50, and twilight tickets cost $8.50 each, or $6.50 for seniors and students.
