Devil’s Night Drive In: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
Before there was Jacques Torres, there was Willy Wonka. Pull up some Astroturf and enjoy this classic about everyone’s favorite eccentric chocolatier taking the worst kids ever on a chocolate factory tour. Needless to day, hilarity, and life lessons, ensues. The drive-in is BYOB so pack up a chocolate porter or, if you’re feeling fancy, the fixings for 320 Main’s Dirty Ground, a grown-up’s chocolate cocktail.
- Gates open at 6pm. $10 presale, $12 gate. 240 W. 4th Street, 2nd floor, Downtown (map).
