After its successful launch in January, TheMerode Cinema Club is coming back with a musical classic, West Side Story by Jerome Robbins & Robert Wise

On New York’s harsh streets of the upper west side, two rival gangs are at odds with each other, The Sharks led by Bernardo and The Jets led by Riff. As Tony, one of the Jets, falls in love with Maria, Bernardo’s sister, tensions between their respective friends build toward tragedy.

In the award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”, the feuding families become two warring gangs. A love story unleashing a series of tragic events brought about solely by racism and discrimination. West Side Story is acclaimed for its engagement with social concerns of the day: racial unrest, urban gang violence, immigration, and altercations with the police.

Initiated in collaboration with fellow member, Denis Pennel, TheMerode Cinema-club 2023 program will showcase three universal themes: Love, Family and Work.

Mark your calendar for the next movie and join us on March 29 for Laurence Anyways by Xavier Dolan, the last movie of the first theme.
