'Dirty Dancing' kicks off free movies in downtown Raleigh

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

If you’re in the mood for a movie tonight, downtown Raleigh just might be the place for you.

The city will begin a series of movies on the City Plaza, with “Dirty Dancing” showing tonight at about 8:30 p.m. The movie is free and open to the public.

“Dirty Dancing,” a 1987 film, was a major hit starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. The film was essentially a low-budget production partly filmed at North Carolina’s Lake Lure. It became a major success, fueled by provocative dancing and an energetic soundtrack.

Tonight’s event begins at 5 p.m. and runs until 10:30 p.m. The movie series includes the live music from the Nick Driver Band.

However, be sure to check the weather before going, with thunderstorms possible.

Food will be available, as will a beer tent with local craft beers.

Lawn chairs are encouraged.

Here is the remaining schedule for the movies:

Friday, May 30: “Talladega Nights”

Friday, June 6: “The Last of the Mohicans”

Friday, June 13: “The Hunger Games”

Friday, June 20: “Iron Man 3”

Friday, June 27: Full Frame Roadshow

You can find out more at the movie series' website.
