'West Side Story' is the film adaptation of the classic 1957 Broadway musical. Set in New York City in the late 1950s the film is based on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet and tells the story of two youngsters from rival NYC gangs who fall in love. The original film, directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, starred Hollywood superstar Natalie Wood in the role of 'Maria', Richard Beymer as 'Tony', Russ Tamblyn as 'Riff', leader of the Jets, George Shakiris as 'Bernardo', leader of the Sharks and Rita Moreno as 'Anita'. The film went on to win ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
The 50th anniversary release coincides with a series of special presentations of the film at the Royal Albert Hall on 22, 23 and 24 June 2012. These high definition screenings of the original film will feature Leonard Bernstein's electrifying score played live throughout the movie by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
