Film Series: West Side Story

1961. USA. Dir: Robert Wise, Jerome Robbins. With Natalie Wood. 152 min.

Boring old Shakespeare gets a dazzling facelift, via this modern musical rendition of star-cross’d lovers compromised by rival gangs rumbling in the NYC streets. Immersive visual style and a brisk pace help keep the passions high, with enough finger-snapping, dance-fighting, and oh-so-catchy singing to stave off you winter chill.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
