Join us for a night at the movies! CPR Classical and the Regal Continental Theater in Denver are teaming up to get YOU to an early showing of Steven Speilberg’s “West Side Story” on December 8 before it opens to the public Friday December 10. 

Steven Spielberg is bringing new life to Leonard Bernstein’s 1957 broadway masterpiece and the academy award winning 1961 film. Spielberg’s remake stays true to this timeless Romeo and Juliet inspired story set in 1950’s New York City, and has enlisted an all-star cast both on screen and off, including the original lyricist Stephen Sondheim, Rita Moreno in a new role as Valentina and the feature film debut of Rachel Zegler as Maria. 

Join CPR Classical for a pre-screening of West Side Story! It’s sure to be an unforgettable evening of Maria and Tony, the Jets versus the Sharks and hits like “Maria” and “Tonight.”
