“Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination.”
Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination. Take a tour of the famous magical factory with Gene Wilder in this children’s classic. Oompa Loompas, chocolate rivers, fizzy lifting drinks are just some of the things you’ll find on this magical journey. Charlie gets a golden ticket and takes the tour, but who will make it to the end? Willy Wonka’s world is lush, fantastic and tinged with just a bit of darkness making this one of the great fantasy films.
