Gene Wilder Willy Wonka

It may have been a while since Gene Wilder was in front of the camera, but that certainly hasn't stifled the love the public has for him or his films. Given his recent passing, two of his most celebrated movies are being made available to watch up on the silver screen. Check your local listings, as WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and BLAZING SADDLES are headed back to select theaters this weekend!

According to Deadline, WILLY WONKA will be at 200 locations while BLAZING SADDLES will be at another 60 this weekend. For those of you with an AMC in the area, 55 of their venues across the country will screen WONKA at 5pm and SADDLES at 7:30pm on Saturday and Sunday, with tickets $5 for each film. Not a bad price to pay to remember the man and see some his best work back up on a theater screen.
