Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and MGM are bringing West Side Story to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, which includes exclusive insight from TCM host Ben Mankiewicz. West Side Story explores the rivalry between two teenage street gangs - white working-class Jets and Puerto Rican Sharks. When a member of the Jets falls in love with the sister of the Sharks' leader, things look hopeful at first, but rapidly go downhill. Illustrating the events are many memorable song and dance numbers such as "America", "Somewhere" and "I Feel Pretty".

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
