In tribute to the passing of actor Gene Wilder (who played Wonka in the film), audiences can see the world of pure imagination based on the best-selling book by Ronald Dahl at the city’s oldest operating movie theater.
The movie follows the journey of Charlie and several other children who were lucky enough to get a gold ticket, which allows them a tour of the mysterious, wondrous candy factory and a lifetime of chocolate. Once inside, it’s discovered there’s more to the contest – and the factory – that the ticketholders weren’t necessarily prepared for and the series of events that ensues.
Don’t miss out on this “golden” opportunity. The screenings are 10 p.m. Friday, September 2 through Sunday, September 4 and 12 p.m. noon on Monday, September 5.
Ticket prices are $11.75, $10.75 for students, $9.75 for children and seniors (Friday-Sunday). For the Monday, September 5 showing, all seats are $6.
