ODEON Cinemas to Screen Classic Dirty Dancing in Cinemas Nationwide in association with Pigsback.com

ODEON Cinemas and Pigsback.com

are to screen ‘Dirty Dancing’ the cult classic that captivated cinema audiences 35 years ago, on Wednesday, 14thSeptember at 6.30pm exclusively for Pigsback members.

For €15 per ticket (including popcorn and a soft drink), fans will be able to relive the classic performances from Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey at participating ODEON Cinemas (Point Square, Stillorgan, Blanchardstown, Coolock, Charlestown, Naas, Newbridge, Castletroy, Cavan, Portlaoise and Waterford).


The smash hit rom-com was expected to be a flop when it was released in 1987, but Dirty Dancing eventually became one of the highest-grossing films of the year, turning Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey into superstars. The film has captivated audiences ever since, and ODEON Cinemas and Pigsback are delighted to team up for this special screening!


Paul Wren, commercial manager for ODEON Cinemas commented:

We are very excited to welcome ‘Dirty Dancing’ back to our screens this month. With such a stellar soundtrack and star studded cast, it was an obvious choice for our continued ODEON and Pigsback.com collaboration.”


The late, great Patrick Swayze once said about the film, “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.”
