Atom User Reviews for West Side Story (1961) presented by TCM
Excellent music and dancing. Movie stands the test of time!!!!
One of the greatest movies of all time.
Amazing and so much more powerful seeing it on the big screen!!!
Loved the movie
Great. See in 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.
My all time favorite movie still after all these years! This movie stands the test of time. Leonard Bernstein was a musical genius. : )
Gr.eat music and dance. Poignant story.
it was great seeing it on the big screen!
Unbelievable on the big screen! Undoubtedly the best musical--if not the best movie--ever made.
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!
Timeless show beautifully performed.
This movie is still relevant!!
Great each and every time watched, especially 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!
Truely a must see again and again
First time seeing it on the big screen. Music is great, dancing incredible, social message relevant today. Wonderful all around.
Was great to see it in it's original form. I enjoyed seeing it on the big screen!
One of my favorites and to see it in a theatre was an amazing treat.
Wonderful movie. We felt like we were seeing it for the first time.
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.
Greatest love story of all time!!! It was amazing to see it on the large screen !!
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!
Fantastic to see this on 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 .
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!
I’ve seen this movie a hundred times and felt like I was seeing it for the first time
I always love seeing this movie on the big screen.
Even more awesome than when I saw the original on Broadway when I was 15 years old!
Very very well done remake of the original. Have seen the play in the past. First time viewing the film. Very Enjoyable!
Greatest movie musical ever!
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.
It won all those Oscar for a readon
I saw West Side Story 50 years ago and I never get tired seeing it again and again and again !
I remembered it being a wonderful film...I just didn't remember how truly wonderful it really is!
Absolute favorite musical of all time. The story line is still relevant today...
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!
Every bit as terrific as when I saw it when it was new.
So great to see it on the big screen. Loved it
Such an amazing film.
Loved seeing this on the big screen! So much more enjoyable watching this movie in an actual theater.
Fantastic!! Just love this movie. It is much more powerful on the big screen.
Thoroughly enjoyed seeing it on the big screen!
Amazing film. Remains current. Every adolescent should see it.
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.
Still nails it after more than 50 years!
As good as it was the first time it Could only get better with time.
