More Info IMDb

Gene Wilder is Willy Wonka. PERIOD. No amount of remaking, re-imagining, or rebooting will ever top the playfully haunting performance of one of the world's greatest actors.  Seriously, this movie never stops being amazing. When you were a kid, it was all about how awesome it would be if you could eat a gummy bear the size of your face or drink from a river made of chocolate.  Now that you're older, you can get nostalgic about that stuff while also seeing all the creepy shining through the cracks of this fantastically fun movie musical. 

Well, we're pulling out all the stops with this special one-night only return to the world of pure imagination. The biggest stop of all: Mike Teevee (Paris Themmen) of this fantastical movie will be joining us live on stage before the show. Seriously! What are you waiting for? Just sign the contract at the bottom line… er, buy your tickets now!
Screening on 35mm film.
