Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for movies under the stars!

This Oscar-winning Romeo and Juliet drama brings New York City to life. In West Side Story, we are introduced to two rival street gangs: the Jets, second-generation American teens, and the Sharks, Puerto Rican immigrants. When the war between the Jets and Sharks reaches a fever pitch, Jets leader Riff (Russ Tamblyn) decides to challenge the Sharks to one last "winner take all" rumble. Not rated.

Know Before You Go:

You should come before 7:00 p.m. to get your spot. Please bring your own picnic blanket or chair, as there is a limited supply of chairs reserved for seniors or people with disabilities. Food is OK, but no alcohol. Reservations are not taken, so space is available on a first come first served basis. All are welcome!
