West Side Story (1961 Film) in 70mm:

Just last month, the Somerville Theatre, in Somerville, MA (which is just north of Boston), showed the film West Side Story as part of a 10-day 70mm film Festival.  Although there were some other good 70mm classic films that were showing (i. e. Lawrence of Arabia, Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty, The Ten Commandments and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, to name afew),  it was the film West Side Story that I'd been really looking forward to seeing.
