Nostalgic Cinema: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (U)

Nostalgic Cinema: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Director: Mel Stuart

Songs by Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley

Duration 100 mins

The 1971 American musical fantasy film starring Gene Wilder, based on the novel by Roald Dahl.

The last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner (Gene Wilder) leads five young winners on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory.

Probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz. It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination. Chicago Times

Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.

All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.

Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Tickets £4.50 - includes tea and biscuits.

Ticket price includes £1 admin fee
