Going to see West Side Story tonight

Tools    





Local theater is showing West Side Story tonight, taking the kids to see how the hardened gangs of New York used to settle their differences through dance!

Should have seen their faces when I told them that instead of The Incredibles 2 we were going to a 60's musical

You can't win an argument just by being right!

Yeah I'm a big believer in using dance and song in that way. Have a good time! Lucky kids.



Just a quick update on our family outing to see West Side Story. Our kids aged 11, 12 and 15 were all riveted by it. Two of them were even choked up over the tragedy near the end. Afterward they all discussed it with the same enthusiasm they do video games.

Just a testament to the power of the classics.

Got to see West Side Story at Seattle Cinerama in the 70MM format. Really special experience.



I know I'm late to the party here, but I went to see the original 1961 film version of West Side Story back in June of 2018, when it was playing in selected theatres nationwide, at a cinema here in Boston, with my sister-in-law and a longtime good friend of mine. We had lots of fun. I went to see it the following Wednesday, solo, and had an equally good time.

Last May, the original 70mm 1961 film version of West Side Story played at the Somerville Theatre, as part of that movie theatre's annual 70mm film festival with some good friends of mine, and it was equally fabulous. This great, golden oldie-but-keeper of a classic movie musical cries to be viewed on a great big, wide screen, in a real movie theatre, with the lights down low.
