West Side Story: Films for Food Screening
Director: Jerome Robbins, Robert Wise
Running Time: 152′
The ultimate modern love story, West Side Story is the perfect musical to enjoy under the London stars. Transferring the story of Romeo and Juliet to 1950s New York City, this masterpiece from Robert Wise (who also directed The Sound of Music) is famous for the iconic battle between the Jets and the Sharks, as well as some of the greatest songs in musical history. Including the likes of ‘America’ and ‘Maria’, the soundtrack is the longest serving number one record in history. Beyond that, its story of a changing city and how love can overcome division. What better film than this to welcome communities from all walks of life, to sing under the stars, and to show our support for people in need.
