"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" is "the best film of its sort since "The Wizard of Oz"...delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and most of all, a genuine work of imagination. A surely and wonderfully spun fantasy" according to film critic Roger Ebert. Gene Wilder starts as Willy Wonka and Jack Albertson as the loving grandfather. (1971) The film will begin at 8:30 p.m.
