PLAYHOUSE ROCK ON EL MOLINO
Free Community 1950's Dance Party
and Outdoor Screening of
JAILHOUSE ROCK
Celebrating the Opening of
SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE
THE SONGS OF LEIBER AND STOLLER

El Molino Avenue will be twisting and shouting with a step back in time to the days of drive-in movies, poodle skirts, pompadours and Elvis with a one-night-only community sock hop dance in front of The Pasadena Playhouse.  Dancers from the Arthur Murray Dance Centers will get the crowd up on their feet and lindy-hopping to classic rock ‘n’ roll songs followed by a free outdoor screening of the 1957 classic “Jailhouse Rock” (attendees are welcome to bring their own folding chairs or blankets for the screening).  Guests can enjoy refreshments from neighborhood businesses (for purchase; no alcohol allowed in event area) and then end the night with a dance-off contest with a celebrity panel of judges who will select the night’s favorite couples.

“Music has a magical gift of bringing people together and The Playhouse continues its commitment to giving back to the community,” said Playhouse Executive Director Elizabeth Doran.  “The songs of SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE are a part of America’s musical tapestry, and we invite our community to come and celebrate with us at our 50’s dance party and movie.  This will be a fun way to end the summer and enjoy spending time with friends and family.”
