Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Director: Mel Stuart Run Time: 100 min. Format: DCP Rating: G Release Year: 1971

Starring: Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, Peter Ostrum

This wild, imaginative adaptation of Roald Dahl’s essential novel remains a childhood classic to this day. Even with its beautiful design and unforgettable scenes, Mel Stuart’s feature length version belongs to Gene Wilder and his amazing performance as a half-mad candy man on the hunt for a successor to his empire (spoiler alert?). Come relive childhood wonderment (or nightmares, in some cases).
