Underground Cinema are taking Dirty Dancing off the screen and into real life and you’re invited.
Our favourite immersive film experience designers Underground Cinema have just announced an exciting collaboration with Mushroom Group – Australia and New Zealand’s largest independent music and entertainment company. Together, under the name of Immersive Cinema, they are launching a new production which will see cinema’s most beloved love story jump off the screen and into the real world this summer. Launching in March 2019 with three huge nights Immersive Cinema are inviting guests to check in at Kellerman’s Mountain Resort and enter the world of Dirty Dancing.
In Sydney the three day event will be hosted in The Domain on Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March and in Melbourne at Flemington Racecourse on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March. Guest’s are promised an experience that will make you feel as though you’re in the glorious Catskills of New York during the summer of ‘63. Enjoy arts and crafts, sports, dance lessons or just relax in the hotel grounds while interacting with Kellerman’s staff and dancers. Immerse yourself in the story of Baby & Johnny as it unfolds around you in real time amongst life-size recreations of the iconic Kellerman’s Mountain House.
Unlike Underground Cinema’s usual events this one is all ages and will be family friendly. They’ll have bars plus many American dining options, including the famous Kellerman’s Diner. From the gazebo to the staff quarters, the dance studios to the golf course, it’s all being recreated making you feel as though you’ve stepped straight into the film.
As the sun sets, grab some popcorn and relive one of the greatest love stories on the big screen and watch the film right under the stars.
