About Street Food Cinema: Special Edition

If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it; want to change the world… there’s nothing to it.  Join Street Food Cinema as we celebrate the life of Gene Wilder with a special presentation of WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY 45th Anniversary at the MILLION DOLLAR THEATRE on November 12th.  

Whether you’re a good nut or a bad nut, you can still get your candy fix on, take some photos with the Oompa Loompas, or perhaps for those older kids, indulge in some adult fared speciality candy cocktails.  So much time and so little to do! Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you.

gene-wilder-meta-slider-1-455x340More than just an actor and a comedian and a colossal talent, Gene Wilder defined some of the most hilarious characters in American cinema.  Mr. Wilder will always be remembered as Eugene Gizzard in “Bonnie & Clyde” – the manic Leo Bloom in “The Producers” – the intrepid Jim in “Blazing Saddles” – the enigmatic Dr. Fredrick Frankenstein in “Young Frankenstein.”  And most of all, he will always define and essentially be Willy Wonka.   This is a tribute to the life, the career, and the force that Gene Wilder was every time he appeared on the silver screen.
