Winner of ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture, this electrifying musical sets the ageless tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet" against a backdrop of gang warfare in 1950s New York.

Whether you've seen the remake or not, it's the perfect time to revisit a classic!

The two warring New York City gangs the Jets (led by Riff) and the Sharks (led by Bernardo) hatred towards each other escalates to a point where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. But when Riff's best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo's younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything to stop their love.

Featuring an unforgettable score, exuberant choreography and powerful performances by Natalie Wood, Russ Tamblyn, Richard Beymer, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris, West Side Story will forever resonate as a true cinematic masterpiece.
