7 November, 1963

Dear Guest,

Welcome to Kellerman’s magnificent Mountain Resort, located in New York state’s gorgeous Catskills. Here at Kellerman’s, we are delighted to be part of your summer vacation and eagerly await your arrival!

Each year we welcome terrific new guests and return visitors for the summer season. Kellerman’s is full of wonderful activities – arts & crafts, American dining and, of course, delicious cocktails. Register for our annual talent show, or hit the golf course. With our talented dance instructors (one even used to be a Rockette!), our daily dance lessons are particularly popular.

Wishing you a truly unforgettable vacation, Kellerman’s is a technology-free resort for maximum relaxation. We can’t wait to see you this March. At Kellerman’s, you’ll have time of your life!


Max Kellerman,

“Join hands and hearts and voices
Voices, hearts and hands
At Kellerman's the friendships last long
As the mountains stand”


It’s the summer of ‘63 in the glorious Catskills, New York.

Gather up your watermelons. Mushroom Group – Australia and New Zealand’s largest independent music and entertainment company, home to Frontier Touring – has teamed up with the leaders of Australia’s most innovative, live, immersive film events, Underground Cinema, in an exciting new business which will see one of the most famous love stories jump off the screen and into the real world.

Launching in March 2019 with three huge nights each at Sydney’s The Domain and Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse, Immersive Cinema makes its premiere with a film guaranteed for good times! Check in at Kellerman’s Mountain Resort this summer and enter the world of Dirty Dancing.


The story of Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman and Johnny Castle, her bad boy dance instructor, is an 80s cult smash hit and legendary in cinema history. Now, get ready to step back in time, with all the Dirty Dancing magic coming to life at Kellerman’s – under the stars.

“We couldn’t be more excited about Immersive Cinema. Internationally, these kinds of events have become a cultural phenomenon over the past decade and we’re confident Australian audiences will absolutely fall in love with the concept. It has been a long time in the works for us and we’re so excited to launch with a film as beloved as Dirty Dancing. Fans of the film will be blown away.”
- Matt Gudinski, Mushroom Group
“Walking into Immersive Cinema will be like walking onto a living and breathing film set of Dirty Dancing, where guests get to become part of the world and see their favourite characters in real life. It’s going to be huge – it’s going to blow your mind!”
- Tamasein Holymna, Underground Cinema

There’s no shortage of fun: resort guests can take an activity or craft class, a sporting game or creative on-site pursuit. Taste the finest dishes this side of New York, or try your hand at the Resort’s golf range. Relax in a salon with a delectable cocktail as the sun sets. There’s dance lessons too, from the Foxtrot to Merengue...
