We don't know about you, but we never get tired of seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and that was before new Candyvision technology was perfected by New Orleans Museum of Art and the New Orleans Film Society. Tonight, Friday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m., those storied institutions will present the 1971 musical film adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the NOMA sculpture garden. For a small donation, the Film Society will hand out bags of film-related candy. Audience members will be instructed to indulge in specific delicacies at related points in the movie to enhance the cinematic experience.
Tickets are $3 for NOFS/NOMA members, $6 for non-members. The Film Society suggests you bring a blanket or chair and requests that no outside food be brought in as program-supporting refreshments will be available. Those who arrive dressed as their favorite Wonka character will receive a free NOMA poster.
