Surely we can all agree that chocolate improves life on Earth!


‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’ 45th Anniversary Screening

KiMo Theatre, 423 Central Ave NW

Willy Wonka – a character popularized by Gene Wilder in the 1971 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s 1964 novelhas long transfixed audiences. Reclusive chocolatier Wonka opts to share his magical world with five lucky kids who find “golden tickets.”

As a child, I certainly envied Charlie Bucket’s luck. It’s the American dream: rising from endemic poverty to make the world a better place. Surely we can all agree that chocolate improves life on Earth.

On Saturday, April 23, The Albuquerque Film & Music Experience hosts a sweet fête at KiMo Theater featuring a 45th anniversary screening of the cult film classic, sing-alongs, costume contests and even a Wonka Land photo booth, all benefitting the AFME Foundation and charitable causes. Arrive by 1:30 p.m. to search for 10 hidden golden tickets that entitle winners to a 2017 AFME Film Lover’s Pass.
