Here's something sweet for you and the kids to sink your teeth into — literally! On Friday, April 1, The Franklin Theatre presents the Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Eat-A-Long Sing-A-Long
. That's a mouthful, right?
The Willy Wonka affair for all ages features a screening of the 1971 classic movie starring Gene Wilder as the peculiar chocolate factory owner. Upon entering the theater, movie-goers will be given a bag of candy with an instruction sheet telling you what sweet things in the bag to eat with which scenes as you watch the movie.
Everyone will also get a Sing-A-Long lyric book so they can chime in and have fun vocalizing along the way. And there's more! Enjoy free chocolates from Franklin's new sweet shop, Seersucker Candy Co
