    30th Anniversary Screenings Of PRINCESS BRIDE And DIRTY DANCING

    Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane City

    Celebrate 30 years of the iconic movies PRINCESS BRIDE and DIRTY DANCING this December!

    On Saturday 2 December, Kristian Fletcher presents a series of special 30th anniversary screenings of the 1987 cult movie classics PRINCESS BRIDE and DIRTY DANCING at Metro Arts, 109 Edward St Brisbane City.

    Whilst home sick in bed, a young boy’s grandfather reads him a story called The Princess Bride: Buttercup has been chosen as the bride of Prince Humperdinck but still laments the death of her one true love, Westley. The result is a crowd-favourite and one of the most quotable movies ever made!

    Princess Bride was made for a modest budget and was a somewhat sleeper hit when first released, however great sales on home video has ensured its ongoing status and appeal.

    On the otherhand, Dirty Dancing was one of the highest grossing films of 1987 - making a profit of over $200 million. Early reactions to the film were mixed on, but it caught on with audiences during its cinematic run and has built a following, particularly amongst female audiences.

    Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle.

    Starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. With a soundtrack of Sixties hits and some of the greatest dance numbers ever caught on film.

    Tickets for all sessions are selling fast!

    Tickets $12 (one movie) $16 (two movies) + booking fee

    "Revisit these iconic movies with an audience of fans - the ultimate way to experience these Eighties classics," Fletcher said.
