Just announced: The Music Box's Easter Special featuring "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."
The Music Box will screen the classic musical, starring the incomparable Gene Wilder (and it's SO much better than the 2005 remake), at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 31. On its site, the theater invites fans to "pig out on candy, wear your best Veruca (or Augustus!) costume and join in with the rest of the audience as our MC leads the house in pre-show singing!"
If only John Mayer, who looked very Wonka-ish at the Grammy Awards, could be there. After all, he already has the suit.
