Experience West Side Story With A Live Score
Forged from the prolific partnership of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein, West Side Story leaped from the Broadway stage to become a celebrated silver screen feature. The seminal musical broke records when it won an astounding ten out of eleven Academy Awards, the most ever garnered by a movie musical, and lives on today as a revered classic of both the golden ages of cinema and musical theatre. Experience its soaring, jazz-infused score live during this special HD screening of the film, accompanied by a live orchestra.
Based on the iconic Shakespearean tragedy Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story transports the action to the Upper West Side of New York in the late 50s. The conflict centers on two rival street gangs, the white Jets led by Riff and the Puerto Rican Sharks led by Bernardo. Amidst the escalating violence and hatred between them, Bernardo's younger sister Maria and Riff's best friend Tony fall in love with tragic consequences for all.
