The Prytania Theater will present four screenings of 1971 family classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in tribute to star Gene Wilder, who died on Monday from complications relating to Alzheimer’s disease. An adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the film is a rare example of a musical made for children that became a cult favorite for adults. The film screens Friday through Sunday, Sept. 2-4 at 10 p.m. and on Monday, Sept. 5 at noon. Tickets are $11.75 for evening screenings and $6 for the matinee. More info here.
