Willy Wonka at the Strand

Saturday, November 13 at 7 PM

50 years ago Gene Wilder disturbed us all with his portrayal of Willy Wonka...
A poor little boy wins a ticket to visit the inside of a mysterious and magical chocolate factory in his town. When he experiences the wonders inside the factory, the boy discovers that the entire visit is a test of his character, with a marvelous reward if he passes muster.
