ODEON cinemas to screen classic Dirty Dancing in cinemas nationwide, in association with Pigsback

ODEON Cinemas and Pigsback.com are set to transport audiences back in time to the magic of 'Dirty Dancing,' the iconic classic that enthralled moviegoers 36 years ago.

This extraordinary event is exclusively available for Pigsback members and will take place on Wednesday, 28th September, at 6.30pm at all ODEON Cinemas nationwide.

For just €15 per ticket, which includes a serving of popcorn and a soft drink, fans can relive the timeless performances of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey at ODEON Cinemas across Ireland.


Participating venues include Point Square, Stillorgan, Blanchardstown, Coolock, Charlestown, Naas, Newbridge, Castletroy, Cavan, Portlaoise, and Waterford.


'Dirty Dancing' initially faced scepticism upon its 1987 release, but it defied all expectations to become one of the highest-grossing films of the year, elevating Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey to superstardom. Its enduring charm has continued to captivate audiences, and now, ODEON Cinemas and Pigsback are thrilled to join forces for this exclusive screening.


Michael Yap, Senior Sales Manager for ODEON Cinemas, shared his excitement, stating, "We are eagerly anticipating the return of 'Dirty Dancing' to our screens this month. With its unforgettable soundtrack and stellar cast, it was a natural choice for our ongoing collaboration with Pigsback.com”.


Reflecting on the film's enduring appeal, the late and legendary Patrick Swayze once remarked, "It's got so much heart, to me. It's not about the sensuality; it's really about people trying to find themselves - this young dance instructor feeling like he's nothing but a product, and this young girl trying to find out who she is in a society of restrictions when she has such an amazing take on things. On a certain level, it's really about the fabulous, funky little Jewish girl getting the guy because of what she's got in her heart".
