Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Mel Stuart.1971, 100 mins. 35mm. With Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, Peter Ostrum. “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men,” says Gene Wilder as the candy king Willy Wonka in this enduring fantasy film. This adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book about five children, including our hero Charlie, who win a coveted trip to a chocolate factory, is (according to Roger Ebert) “probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz.”
