West Side Story.

A classic reminder that the best rumbles tend to be highly choreographed, that if you want to join a gang, you'd better learn to snap and of how pretty being in love can make you feel, this Romeo and Juliet-inspired landmark musical won ten Oscars and has become a pop culture icon in its own right. 52 years old and still as fresh as ever, it's worth checking out Maria (Natalie Wood) and Tony's (Richard Beymer) romance on the Egyptian's big screeneven if you've seen it more times than you can count.
