Sunset Screenings: Strictly Ballroom
September 1, 2012
The AT&T PAC and the Dallas Film Society present the Sunset Screenings of Strictly Ballroom (PG), a 1992 Australian romantic comedy film about Scott Hastings, one of Australia's best ballroom dancers. The target for a number of championships until he abandons the Dance Federation's rigid steps in favor of his own moves. Horrified by his behavior, his partner leaves him and forces him to take up with an amateur who matches Scott's zest for life, but can they win by rejecting tradition?
The free outdoor shows at Strauss Square (now BYOB) provide an opportunity for the public to relax in a spectacular downtown venue in the Dallas Arts District while enjoying a movie. Admission to Sunset Screenings is free. RSVP is encouraged, but not required. Two hundred reserved seats in chairs at the front of the lawn are available, with additional seating on the lawn. Chairs are first come first seated.
NOTE: Patrons enjoying Sunset Screenings at Annette Strauss Square will now be able to bring their own food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages. Soft-sided coolers and picnic baskets up to 16” X 16” will be allowed. Concessions, including alcoholic beverages, will also be available for purchase. However, purchased alcoholic beverages must be consumed in the defined area and may not be transported to the patron’s performance seat.
