Open Gate Brewery, Thursday 5th September

Happenings, in association with Guinness Open Gate Brewery, bring you an exciting triple bill of movies. On our second date, you'll be having the time of your life with Dirty Dancing.

In the summer of 1963, 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman is vacationing with her parents, Dr Jake and Marjorie Houseman, and her older sister Lisa, at Kellerman's – an upscale Catskills resort. Owner Max is a friend of Jake's. Exploring one night, Baby secretly observes Max instructing the waiters, all Ivy League students, to romance the guests' daughters, no matter how unattractive. She also sees Max demeaning the working class entertainment staff, including Johnny Castle, one of the resort's dance instructors. Baby is attracted to Johnny and dances briefly with him when his cousin, Billy, takes her to one of the staff's secret Dirty Dancing parties.
