      Friday Flicks: West Side Story

      Come see the movie that won 10 Academy Awards and inspired Steven Spielberg to remake the film, set for release next year. The original is an adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical, which was inspired by William Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet.” The tale of a turf war between rival teenage gangs in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen and the two lovers who cross battle lines has captivated audiences for four decades. The Stephen Sondheim/Leonard Bernstein score is just one of the reasons. It stars Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris. The film has been deemed “culturally significant” by the U.S. Library of Congress and was selected for the National Film Registry in 1997. (1961) Rated PG-13 The movie will begin at 7. Tickets are $7 or $5 for students with ID. They are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but can be purchased the night of the show when doors open. Doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6:30. The Varsity is downtown Carbondale at 418 S. Illinois Ave. Go to www.facebook.com/varsitycenter to keep up with all events and to make sure there are no unexpected changes in the lineup.
