TCM announced Wednesday that its annual TCM Classic Film Festival — virtual for the second year in a row, after pivoting in 2020 to accommodate COVID-19 precautions — will kick off with a 60th-anniversary screening of West Side Story and exclusive new interviews with original cast members Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno, and George Chakiris.

The latter two actors won Oscars for their performances in the 1961 classic.

This year’s festival will be presented Thursday, May 6, through Sunday, May 9. It will air on the Turner Classic Movies network and, for the first time, within the Classics Curated by TCM Hub on HBO Max.
