West Side Story12A

Directed by Steven Spielberg | USA | 2020 | 2h 36m | Starring Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez

Two youngsters from rival New York City gangs fall in love, but tensions between their respective friends build toward further friction out on the streets. Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the 1957 musical (and reimagining of the 1961 Best Picture winner) is a sharp update on a classic packed with unforgettable songs and ingeniously staged dance routines.

Reviews

‘Full of energy, wit, passion and tragedy, looking backward and forward at once, it is one of the most moving films of the year.’
★★★★★
Caryn James, BBC

‘Heartfelt and heart-breaking, this feels like Spielberg has made an adaptation faithful to its roots but also, always, alive to the modern world.’
★★★★★
Helen O’Hara, Empire Magazine

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
