Cannonballing down through the sky with a virtual gleam in its eye, the 12th annual TCM Classic Film Festival will run May 6-9 on TCM and HBO Max, kicking off with a 60th anniversary screening of West Side Story, it was announced Wednesday.

"It is sure to be a memorable weekend, packed with everything you have come to love about the TCM Classic Film Festival, and we all get to experience it from the comfort of our home," TCM host Ben Mankiewicz says.

West Side Story stars Rita Moreno, George Chakiris and Russ Tamblyn are scheduled for a reunion that will air on TCM and simultaneously be available on the HBO Max streamer at 5 p.m. PDT on opening night.
