West Side Story

400 years since his death, Shakespeare’s influence on contemporary culture isn’t going anywhere.

1961’s West Side Story is a 20th century twist on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the feuding Montague and Capulet families replaced by warring New York gangs.

Presented here on 35mm, West Side Story won more Oscars than any other musical in history, and has been described as ‘perhaps the most iconic of all the Shakespeare adaptations to visit the big screen’.

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Bard than to join the Jets and the Sharks’ battle for New York.
