Wednesday 7 July- 50 Year Anniversary Screening: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

World Chocolate Day can only mean one thing - Willy Wonka and his factory of edible wonders in this seminal classic.

Fifty years after this merry movie charmed audiences with a colourful mix of song, humour and life lessons, the Candy Man still wields magic, especially now in a vibrant new print with a soundtrack in true stereo.

From the classic Roald Dahl story comes a lip-smacking delight with jolly tunes, among them The Candy Man and Pure Imagination. With a golden ticket young Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) wins a tour of the factory of wily mogul Wonka (Gene Wilder) and run by his Oompa-Loompa crew. There Charlie, his Grandpa Joe (Jack Albertson) and others discover a kind heart is a finer possession than a sweet tooth. Don't let the tour leave without you!
