Summer Rewind

Willy Wonka Trailer


This summer, you have a Golden Ticket to this magical, musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's charmingly eccentric novella, which won audiences over more than 50 years ago with unforgettable songs, vibrant set pieces and Gene Wilder's impeccable performance as the reclusive chocolatier. The mysterious Willy Wonka announces that five lucky children can enter his infamous Chocolate Factory, and the world goes mad searching for the Golden Tickets. Against all odds, poor Charlie Bucket finds the last one, and joins four other (odious) children in a world of "pure imagination." Revisit this beloved classic before this fall's release of Wonka, starring Timothée Chalamet and directed by Paul King, the acclaimed filmmaker behind Paddington.

D: Mel Stuart, US, 1971, 1h38m

Full Summer Listing

“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.”
