Presented by The Broadway League's Viva Broadway and the United Palace of Cultural Arts, this second installment of "Sunday Movies at the Palace with Lin-Manuel Miranda" will screen the film adaptation of the 1957 Broadway musical, which features a score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim and a book by Arthur Laurents. The film was directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins.
The theatre, which was originally called the Loew's 175th Street Theatre when it opened in 1930, has not screened films in more than 40 years. The "Sunday at the Palace" series follows the fundraising campaign "Return Film to the Palace," which raised close to $50,000.
A monthly screening of classic New York City films, chosen by Miranda, plays through June. Miranda will host the screenings joined by special guests.
He will introduce "West Side Story" with a stage show featuring a conversation with Moreno. Guests in tuxedos or gowns will receive a free bag of popcorn at the concession stand.
