Relive your childhood chocolate dreams with Willy Wonka
“Come with me and you’ll be, in a world of pure imagination.” So sang the reclusive chocolate maker Willy Wonka upon opening the doors of his factory to a small group of children back in 1971.
Now, 45 years later, you will have the chance to see the Gene Wilder classic Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory back on the big screen without needing a golden ticket.
Come and take a whirlwind tour of Wonka’s incredible, edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas, and industrial-sized confections, as a boy named Charlie discovers the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart lay behind the eccentric and often bewildering face of the eponymous chocolate maker.
The beloved film will be accompanied by special commentary from TCM's Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz, who will provide insight, background and more, making this film come alive.
The special two-day event will be screened at Carmike's East Ridge 18 cinemas on South Terrace on Sunday at 2 p.m. and again on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
