One of the biggest cultural sensations in recent years is on its way back. The Mushroom Group’s Immersive Cinema, in collaboration with Lionsgate, is excited to announce the highly anticipated return of its ground-breaking Dirty Dancing immersive cinema event series, exclusively in Melbourne.

After a sold-out season in early 2019, Dirty Dancing: The Immersive Cinema Experience will be re opening for one weekend only at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2ndApril 2023.

With limited tickets available, fans are encouraged to be quick once the event goes on sale to the general public on Wednesday 30th November. Sessions are strictly limited and expected to sell out.

Lucky guests will step back in time to 1963 and enter the world of the classic ‘80s smash, experiencing life-size re-creations of the iconic Kellerman’s Resort, surrounded by walkaround characters, locations, music and dancing that made the original movie so beloved. Enjoy arts & crafts, sports, and dance lessons or simply relax in the salon while you interact with performers and dancers, as the movie unfolds around you in real-time.

Guests are encouraged to not only step into the world of Dirty Dancing but become part of the narrative. From the Gazebo to the Staff Quarters to the Dance Studio and Golf Course; guests will have the time of their lives. Kellerman’s is a technology-free resort, so guests will be asked to keep their smartphones bagged to allow themselves to get fully swept away in the atmosphere of ‘63.

Unwind with a cocktail or one of the many Americana dining options. When the sun sets, grab some popcorn and relive one of the greatest love stories on the big screen under the stars.


Time Out Melbourne (Rebecca Russo):

As someone who still carries a watermelon for Johnny (and wouldn’t even dream of putting Baby in a corner) the thought of time travelling back to the summer of ‘63 sounded pretty peachy. From the moment we walked in, it was like we stepped right into the real Kellerman’s Resort, with classic cars, friendly games of badminton, sassy staff and impromptu dance lessons happening on the gazebo. We had so much fun sneaking into the staff quarters with Baby, Billy and the gang…it was a super fun (and super accurate) tribute to a classic film. Bravo!

Cass Drew:

This was just beyond brilliant! Amazing staff, excellent sets…everything exceeded all my expectations.

Jade Wisely:

Went last night. Hands down best event I have ever attended. Attention to detail awesome. Phone free was a fabulous indulgence. Loved every second.

Louisa Di Pietro:

What a fabulous immersive experience we had! The entire production was brilliant. The grounds, the dancers, actors, movie experience and management were fantastic. Thank you for giving us the time of our lives!.

Tickets are on sale to the general public on Wednesday 30 November. Immersive Cinema presents Dirty Dancing: The Immersive Cinema Experience this April. Don’t miss out.
