On the occasion of the legendary musical ‘West Side Story’ new version premiere by Steven Spielberg, the Filmax Gran Vía Cinemas in Barcelona organized a new “Jazz & Film Sessions” event.

The event began with a performance of Laura Simó & Francesc Capella Trío, who covered songs from the film which tells of the confrontation between two New York street gangs, adapting a famous Broadway play that modernized Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” tale. After a break sponsored by Estrella de Galicia, the screening of “West Side Story” began.

This cultural initiative promoted by Cines Filmax and Fluge Audiovisuales Barcelona, once again paid tribute to the magic of cinema and its link with jazz.
