A Patrick Swayze Double Feature  
“Dirty Dancing & To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar” on Friday, June 26

“Dirty Dancing”
Rated: PG-13, Run time: 1 hour 40 minutes

Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary
“To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar”
Rated: PG-13, Run time: 1 hour 49 minutes

Partially filmed in Nebraska.   Elite Manhattan drag queens Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes) impress regional judges in competition, securing berths in the Nationals in Los Angeles. When the two meet pathetic drag novice Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Alberto Leguizamo) — one of the losers that evening — the charmed Vida and Noxeema agree to take the hopeless youngster under their joined wing. Soon the three set off on a madcap road trip across America and struggle to make it to Los Angeles in time.
