UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the rainy weather expected later on this evening, the Happenings and 7UP Free® screening of Dirty Dancing has been postponed until next week.
Happenings, in association with 7up Free is delighted to announce that it will return to Merrion Square, Dublin for the second instalment of Summer Cinema. The park will be transformed into an outdoor cinema for a special screening of the smash hit romcom Dirty Dancing tomorrow evening, Friday, July 27.
There's no better way to spend a Friday night than swooning over Patrick Swayze on the big screen.
The film follows the story of ‘Baby’ (Jennifer Grey) who finds herself on a sleepy summer holiday with her family. While there, she falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) whom her father forbids her to see. However, she is determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer!
Gates open at 8.30pm with the movie screening beginning as the sun goes down.
Before the movie kicks off, guests can settle into a comfy billow bag with a complimentary 7up Free in the beautiful surrounds of Merrion Square - perfectly capturing the taste and feeling of summer.
There will be a host of tasty food vendors available and guests are welcome to bring their own picnics, snacks and outdoor movie essentials! In keeping with Happening’s Leave No Trace policy, Summer Cinema goers are urged to take all belongings with them once the movie has ended and small bags will be provided to dispose of any rubbish.
Places are limited for each screening, so make sure to follow the Happenings and 7UP Free social media channels to be the first to know the dates and times for each screening and avoid missing out on these blockbuster events.
Tickets are priced at €5 and are available to book in advance online or on the door. Early arrival is advised to get the best seats in the house – “Nobody puts baby in a corner!”
