Silver Screening: West Side Story (2021)
This is a Silver Screening for film fans aged 55yrs plus. Tickets cost £5.
Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, West Side Story tells the classic tale of fierce rivalries and young love in 1957 New York City.
This exuberant and colourful reimagining of the beloved musical stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria.
Love at first sight strikes when young Tony spots Maria at a high school dance. Their burgeoning romance helps to fuel the fire between the warring Jets and Sharks – two rival gangs vying for control of the streets.
“A vividly dreamed, cunningly modified and visually staggering revival”
The Guardian ★★★★★
“Heartfelt and heart-breaking, this feels like Spielberg has made an adaptation faithful to its roots but also, always, alive to the modern world”
