Due to rain and wind, we had to cancel our May 21st Movie Night
Come join us for the showing of [Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory] at approximately 8PM on the Beach lawn. Come stake out your spot on the lawn. Coolers, lawn chairs, and picnic blankets are welcome. Free popcorn will be provided. This is a popular event, so come early for a good seat!
One lucky person will take home the DVD of tonight’s movie in a random drawing from all attendees. Tickets for the drawing are distributed before the movie starts. Drawing will be held immediately after the movie and winner must be present.
Here’s a short synopsis of the movie:
In an unnamed European town, children go to a candy shop after school. Charlie Bucket, whose family is poor, can only stare through the window as the shop owner sings “Candy Man”. The newsagent for whom Charlie works after school gives him his weekly pay, which Charlie uses to buy a loaf of bread. On his way home, he passes Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. A mysterious tinker recites the first lines of William Allingham’s poem “The Fairies”, and tells Charlie, “Nobody ever goes in, and nobody ever comes out.” Charlie rushes home to his widowed mother and his four bedridden grandparents. After he tells Grandpa Joe about the tinker, Joe tells him that Wonka locked the factory because other candy makers, including his arch-rival, Arthur Slugworth sent in spies disguised as employees to steal his chocolate and candy recipes. Wonka disappeared, but three years later began selling more candy; the origin of Wonka’s labor force is a mystery. G, 100 mins. [Parental Guidance]
