Join the Film Society at the 15th annual Winter’s Eve block party at Lincoln Square with this “scrumdidilyumptious” classic starring Gene Wilder back on the big screen—complete with free popcorn for all attendees! Screenings take place Monday, December 1st at 3:30pm, 5:30pm, and 7:30pm.
This event is free and open to the public. Complimentary tickets will be distributed at the box office starting one hour prior to the event, but the line may form earlier. There is a limit of one ticket per person.
A perennial cult favorite that’s just as odd as you remembered, this musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fanciful novel stars Gene Wilder as the zany, top-hatted recluse Willy Wonka. Against all odds, the indigent Charlie Bucket finds a winning ticket, and chaperoned by his sickly Grampa Joe, must compete against four more privileged kids, who, one by one, are forced out of the race, as their candy-related moral failures are put to song by the Oompa Loompas. A must-see for kids of all ages.
