After selling out “The Phantom of the Opera” sit-in movie, Sun Valley Opera is offering another movie al fresco.

It will show the 1961 film classic “West Side Story” on the big screen of the Sun Valley Pavilion lawn at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 15.

The lawn opens at 4 p.m. for picnicking. Groups will be seated in socially distanced pods and asked to wear masks to and from their seats.

Tickets are $40 for a pod of two, $80 for a four-person pod and $150 for pods seating up to eight, available at SunValleyResort.eventbrite.com or at 208-622-2135. Moviegoers are asked to bring their own picnics and low back chairs.

The screening of “The Phantom of the Opera” on Aug. 26 was quite the event, noted the opera’s executive director Robyn Watson. Wind gusts accentuated the exciting moments in the film and the sky even got a little weepy at the ending.

Masquerade masks completed outfits to that showing. T-shirts with rolled up sleeves and Puerto Rican dancing skirts will fit “West Side Story,” the film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.

The film won 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, as Natalie Wood, Rita Moreno, Richard Beymer and others danced, kissed, sang and fought their way through rumbles and romance as rival New York City gangs set the stage for a modern-day Romeo and Juliet story.
