Winner of 10 Oscars, West Side Story was a technical and artistic tour de force when it was released in 1961 and is still a magnificent spectacle that deserves to be seen on the big screen. Leonard Bernstein’s ambitious score, exhilarating dance numbers and inventive staging drive a modernist re-imagining of Romeo & Juliet, where the star crossed lovers come from rival street gangs in 1950’s New York.
