This March, step into the world of Dirty Dancing at Australia’s first ever Immersive Cinema series.

The groundbreaking event will teleport visitors back to the summer of ’63 at Kellerman’s Mountain House. The large and welcoming team of Kellerman’s staff and dancers will guide you through the expansive hotel grounds where you can enjoy an array of arts, craft and sports activities. 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 resort.

Unwind with a cocktail or at one of the many American dining options, including the famous Kellerman’s Diner. From the gazebo to the staff quarters, the dance studios to the golf course, you’re sure to have the time of your life.

As the sun sets, grab some popcorn and relive one of the greatest love stories on the big screen right under the stars.

The Event

DOES KELLERMAN’S ENFORCE A DRESS CODE?

Dressing up is HIGHLY encouraged. Dresses, cardigans, summer shirts and comfy shoes for dancing are advised.

WHAT CAN I DO AT KELLERMAN’S?

There’s no shortage of fun: resort guests can participate in dance lessons, a sporting game or creative onsite pursuit. There’s even rumour of a Talent Show taking place so be sure to dust off those tap shoes!

BUT AREN’T WE WATCHING A FILM?

Correct! Grab your popcorn as the sun sets. At 8.30pm the big screen will come alight with one of the most beloved romantic movies of all time, screening under the stars.

WHAT IS KELLERMAN’S POLICY ON PHONES AND CAMERAS?

Wishing you a truly unforgettable vacation, Kellerman’s is a technology-free resort for maximum relaxation. We encourage visitors to embrace the time away from their screens and soak up their surrounds. It is a rare luxury.

Once you enter through the Kellerman’s gates, phones (and digital recording devices) will be placed into a pouch which visitors will keep on them. If you need to use your phone, you will need to get a pass out and make a call outside the resort. Please note that there is a $1 re-sealing fee (bags can be re-sealed once) and a $2 fee for a new bag.

All money collected from re-sealing and re-bagging will be donated to The Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Immersive Cinema, being an outdoor event, is subject to the elements. We will continue to dance through most weather conditions, including rain. A cancellation will only occur if the weather conditions present a danger to patrons or staff. All attendees must accept the prospect of unsatisfactory weather. All tickets will be non-refundable. But if a show is cancelled, your tickets will be transferable to another night.

So, for the love of the Pachenga we encourage you to not only dress-up, but dress smart. Bring something to keep you warm and dry, in case it’s required. Plastic ponchos, blankets and waterproof picnic blankets are always a safe option.
