Next up is Emile Ardolino's "Dirty Dancing" on Friday, July 10th. The film, which stars Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, and Jerry Orbach, follows Frances "Baby" Houseman, who is spending the summer in a holiday camp with her family. She falls hard for the camp's dance instructor Johnny Castle, creating a red-hot summer romance.
