Family Film Club

Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Just to get you in a chocolate-y mood, we’ve got a sugary cinematic delight just for you. 

Based on Roald Dahl’s beloved classic book, this magical musical version sees young Charlie and his Grandpa Joe attending reclusive Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory for an adventure they’ll never forget.

With a dreamy-eyed Gene Wilder playing the enigmatic chocolatier and a soundtrack full of earworms that'll have you humming all the way home, this is a super sweet treat up on the big screen.
