Robert Wise-Jerome Robbins/WEST SIDE STORY Back on the Big Screen

Andre Soares

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins' West Side Story, NCM Fathom and Turner Classic Movies will present a one-night screening of the multiple Oscar winner in movie theaters nationwide at 7:00 pm (local time) on November 9.

The West Side Story presentation includes a new Turner Classic Movies original production, followed by MGM’s 50th Anniversary restoration of the 1961 United Artists release. (MGM bought UA in the '80s, following Michael Cimino's costly Heaven's Gate fiasco.)

Starring Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Academy Award winners Rita Moreno and George Chakiris, West Side Story won a total of 10 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Direction.

As per the TCM press release , tickets will become available on Friday, October 7, via Go here for more information and a list of all the theatres across the US .
