This week we had a special event and watched a movie that should need no introduction: Dirty Dancing! A downtown theatre is having a mini film festival, playing old movies on the big screen for just $5, and we couldn't miss the chance to see Dirty Dancing in all its glory. My friend Shaun was with us, watching (for the first time!!!) Swayze teach Baby to dance. A man sitting next to him in the theatre was really into the movie, even conducting at times apparently. That guy wasn't the only one really enjoying the movie though. There was much cheering, whistling and even some screaming and fist pumping going on in the audience. They're still playing more old movies until the end of the week, so if you live in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, or Montreal check out the listings.
In the meantime, here's the trailer and a special moment:
Amanda, a Guilty Pleasure regular noted that Dirty Dancing might be the guiltiest movie we've ever watched. I love it! LOVE IT! And don't we all miss Patrick Swayze? I know I do, and this movie makes me miss him more.
Jacqui made it into a true junior high party by eating Smarties and drinking orange juice, while I slightly regret smuggling in an orange because it was a weird and sticky food to eat at the movies. I'm looking forward to next week's Valentine's Day edition already! Jacqui's movie pick is next...round three. What will it be?
