Silver Lake Picture Show presents Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann, 1996)

Join us for the 20th Anniversary screening of ‘Romeo + Juliet’! As always, show up early for a free musical performance and short film from local artists, to get the best spot and to eat delicious food and local restaurants!

Baz Luhrmann helped adapt this classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy for the screen, updating the setting to a post-modern city named Verona Beach. In this version, the Capulets and the Montagues are two rival gangs. Juliet (Claire Danes) is attending a costume ball thrown by her parents. Her father Fulgencio Capulet (Paul Sorvino) has arranged her marriage to the boorish Paris (Paul Rudd) as part of a strategic investment plan. Romeo attends the masked ball and he and Juliet fall in love.


Initial release: November 1, 1996 (USA)
Director: Baz Luhrmann
