Atom User Reviews for West Side Story (1961) presented by TCM
Amazing and so much more powerful seeing it on the big screen!!!
Excellent music and dancing. Movie stands the test of time!!!!
One of the greatest movies of all time.
Loved the movie
This movie is still relevant!!
Thoroughly enjoyed seeing it on the big screen!
Unbelievable seeing it on the big screen. I've seen this movie countless times on the TV and even though I graduated from a 25" tube TV when I was a child to an OLED 60" TV, it was still breath-taking to see it on the big screen. If you are a fan of this movie take the opportunity to see it on the big screen. Since this movie was originally filmed on 70mm Panavision, there is no other way to truly see the movie!
Still nails it after more than 50 years!
I've seen West Side Story 300 times...but never on the big screen. What a fantastic epic movie to see in a theater. It's a favorite of mine but seeing it bigger than life with the dancing, music, setting and beautiful wardrobe of the 60's in the backdrop of a New York neighborhood was phenomenal! A MUST SEE!
Truely a must see again and again
it was great seeing it on the big screen!
West Side Story re-wrote how musicals came from Broadway to the movies. Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein were geniuses. The music is as great today as it was in 1962.
One of my favorites and to see it in a theatre was an amazing treat.
Great. See in big screen
Iconic musical. Still resonates with me today as much and even more than it did when I first saw it as a child. Thanks so much for giving us opportunity to experience it again in theatrical format.
Gr.eat music and dance. Poignant story.
Amazing seeing this on a large screen! Jerome Robbins choreography is amazing!!! What made me sad was that the subject matter, prejudice , is still relevant today. I wish people would love not hate!
Great each and every time watched, especially on the "big" screen.
Saw this on the big screen back when I was 14 years old. So wonderful to see it in all its glory again! A must-see for anyone who loves a magnificent musical .
I’ve seen this movie a hundred times and felt like I was seeing it for the first time
Timeless show beautifully performed.
Even more awesome than when I saw the original on Broadway when I was 15 years old!
Wonderful movie. We felt like we were seeing it for the first time.
Was great to see it in it's original form. I enjoyed seeing it on the big screen!
Very very well done remake of the original. Have seen the play in the past. First time viewing the film. Very Enjoyable!
First time seeing it on the big screen. Music is great, dancing incredible, social message relevant today. Wonderful all around.
I saw West Side Story 50 years ago and I never get tired seeing it again and again and again !
What a pleasure to see one of my favorite movies on the big screen once again. The evening was pure joy! I will always love this amazing work of pure genius!
Absolute favorite musical of all time. The story line is still relevant today...
Greatest love story of all time!!! It was amazing to see it on the large screen !!
Greatest movie musical ever!
Fantastic to see this on big screen!
Such an amazing film.
Fantastic!! Just love this movie. It is much more powerful on the big screen.
I always love seeing this movie on the big screen.
Every bit as terrific as when I saw it when it was new.
I remembered it being a wonderful film...I just didn't remember how truly wonderful it really is!
Great for the entire family; from 12 to 76, everyone loved it. There’s a power seeing it on the big screen that isn’t there on a smaller one—or worse, in a pan-and-scan version, which is what I grew up with. Dancing is utterly epic. Music is wonderful. Absolutely a Must-See Movie.
It won all those Oscar for a readon
As good as it was the first time it Could only get better with time.
West Side Story has always been one of my favorite musicals of all time since my childhood. I saw the stage production at the van wezel five years ago and I love it every moment of it.
Amazing film. Remains current. Every adolescent should see it.
Loved seeing this on the big screen! So much more enjoyable watching this movie in an actual theater.
Seeing on the big screen is like seeing it all over again! The music, for baby boomers, is part of our consciousness...melodies ingrained in our head and in our hearts. West Side Story is truly an American masterpiece!
Unbelievable on the big screen! Undoubtedly the best musical--if not the best movie--ever made.
So great to see it on the big screen. Loved it
My all time favorite movie still after all these years! This movie stands the test of time. Leonard Bernstein was a musical genius. : )
