WEST SIDE STORY Starts Friday at The Skyview Drive-in in Belleville, IL

By Tom Stockman

The Skyview Drive-in in Belleville (5700 N Belt W, Belleville, IL 62226) will be showing WEST SIDE STORY (1961) beginning July 24th.

Visually inventive and emotionally resonant, “West Side Story” is the tale of two warring New York City gangs – the Jets and the Sharks – and the ill-fated love story that springs up in their midst. The film stars Natalie Wood as Maria, Richard Beymer as her boyfriend Tony, Rita Moreno as Maria’s sister Anita, and George Chakiris as Bernardo. Both Moreno and Chakiris received Oscars® for their indelible work in supporting roles.


By blending realistic settings, stylized choreography, an extraordinary cast of performers and an unforgettable score, “West Side Story” became a cinematic and cultural sensation when it was released in October 1961, grossing $43 million at the box office – equivalent to $500 million in today’s dollars. Its soundtrack, including “Tonight,” “I Feel Pretty,” “America,” “Something’s Coming” and “Somewhere,” has become one of the most iconic in movies history.
