Abbeydale Picture House screens West Side Story
Sheffielders once again have the chance to see a classic film at the Abbeydale Picture House this Sunday, as West Side Story is presented on 35mm. On Sunday 1st May the grand old cinema will play host to one of the most iconic Shakespeare adaptations in cinema history.
West Side Story brings a twist to the tale of Romeo and Juliet by moving the action to New York City. Tony and Maria fall in love, but get caught in the crossfire when tensions between their respective friends in rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, build towards tragedy. West Side Story won 10 Oscars and stands testament to the lasting appeal of Shakespeare’s storytelling.
Coming just after the Shakespeare 400 celebrations, this is the perfect time to revisit a classic musical on the big screen, and where better to experience it than at the Abbeydale Picture House?
