Winner of ten Oscars (including Best Picture) and arguably the best musical ever made, West Side Story is an electrifying classic that sets a Romeo and Juliet story in the slums of 1950s New York, with Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein’s superb score the perfect backdrop. White West Side American gang the Jets are preparing to fight their rivals, the Puerto Rican Sharks. But matters are complicated when Tony (Richard Beymer) falls in love with Maria (a luminous Natalie Wood), the sister of Barnardo, the leader of the Sharks. Groundbreaking choreography and an unforgettable energy make West Side Story a must-see on the big screen.
