Film
Friday, December 2

Cost: Free
Charlie receives a golden ticket to a chocolate factory, and it turns out there's an adventure in everything.

USA | 89 min | G | DCP | Dir. Mel Stuart 

The last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner leads five young winners on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory. (IMDB)

"'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' is probably the best film of its sort since "The Wizard of Oz." It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination. “Willy Wonka” is such a surely and wonderfully spun fantasy that it works on all kinds of minds, and it is fascinating because, like all classic fantasy, it is fascinated with itself." - Roger Ebert
