West Side Story (70mm) screening at Coral Gables Art Cinema

Sat 2 Dec, 2017 - Mon 4 Dec, 2017

Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins’ cinematic landmark brings Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to Manhattan’s West Side as María (Natalie Wood) and Tony (Richard Beymer) fall in love in spite of the racially driven gang warfare that threatens the peace in their neighborhood. West Side Story won 10 Oscars, including Best Picture, the most for any musical. The real star of the show, though, is Leonard Bernstein’s glorious score. From “Maria” to “Tonight” to “America” to “Somewhere,” West Side Story features one unforgettable tune after another (not to mention song lyrics by a twentysomething Stephen Sondheim). It remains an almost unrivaled big-screen experience, especially in glorious 70mm!

“The best film musical ever made.” – Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic

“West Side Story remains a landmark of musical history.” – Roger Ebert
