35mm presentation! - Expecting the usual tedium that accompanies a summer in the Catskills with her family, 17-year-old Frances "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is surprised to find herself stepping into the shoes of a professional hoofer -- and unexpectedly falling in love. The object of her affection? The resort's free-spirited dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). This guilty pleasure became a classic and won an Oscar for Best Song ("I've Had the Time of My Life").
In cooperation with the Free Your Star Foundation. The Free Your Star Foundation (www.FreeYourStarFoundation.org), aims to change the face of fashion, film, photography, music and journalism industries by being a fiscal and mentor resource for urban youth and women.
