Classic Film Club Tuesday 3rd February 'West Side Story'
« on: January 30, 2015, 11:53:50 AM »
Hi Everyone

Fantastic attendance last week and thank you. I have had to replace ‘Amadeus’ with ‘West Side Story’ as the former is too long. This film runs to around 150 mins so will start 5 mins earlier than usual. It is still one of the best film adaptations of a musical ever created and won 10 Oscars.

Film: ‘West Side Story’
Place: Orpheus Cinema
Day: Tuesday
Date: 3rd February
Time: 4.25pm
Running time: 150 mins
Price: €5

This movie transplants the classic tale of "Romeo and Juliet" to New York City in the 1950s. The two feuding families are replaced by brawling street gangs. The Montagues become the Anglo Jets led by Riff and the Capulets become the Puerto Rican Sharks led by Bernardo. At a dance, Tony, former leader of the Jets and Riff's best friend, and Maria, Bernardo's little sister, see each other across the room and it's love at first sight. With opposition from both sides, they meet secretly and their love grows deeper. However, the gangs are plotting one last rumble, a fight that will finally end the battle for control of the streets. Will Tony and Maria's love carry through a battle that threatens to destroy the people they love around them?
