Monday, April 11th: Cinema Jukebox – West Side Story
America’s favorite musical hits the big screen at the Coolidge Corner Theatre next week! This 50s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet pits two New York gangs, the Sharks and the Jets, against each other in a bitter fight for neighborhood control. The plot thickens when Jets member Tony falls in love with Maria, the younger sister of Sharks ring-leader Bernardo. Its drama well deserving of the Coolidge Theatre’s 1930s-era splendor!
Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard Street. 7 – 10 pm. $12. http://www.coolidge.org/films/west-side-story
