Time Out says

Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a 10-film series called "See It Big: Sondheim," celebrating the composer, lyricist, author, artist, and all-around innovator. The survey offers audiences the chance to see a selection of film interpretations of Sondheim’s stage work in MoMI’s grand Redstone Theater: musicals written for the screen; unexpected dramas to which he contributed scores or screenplays; and the documentary Original Cast Album: Company, that allows viewers access to his process. "See It Big" is a collaboration between the Museum of the Moving Image and Reverse Shot.

The series opens on Friday, April 1, with a big-screen presentation of West Side Story, directed by Steven Spielberg (showing again on April 3), followed by screenings of the original movie version of West Side Story (1961) the same weekend; and continuing through May 1 with screenings of Gypsy (1962), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966), Original Cast Album: Company (1970), Stavisky (1974), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Into the Woods (2014), The Last of Sheila (1973), and Dick Tracy (1990). The full schedule is right here.
