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!

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!
