Eat Your Easter Candy with Willy Wonka

On Sunday, the Music Box Theatre is hosting a special screening of the Gene Wilder classic—complete with candy and props for the crowd.

Easter Sunday is not complete until you’re sitting in the Music Box Theatre (3733 N. Southport Ave.) clapping to a Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory costume contest and singing along to the movie. (Literally. The audience is encouraged to sing, and costumes will be judged by applause.)

Don’t worry, there will be a six-foot-tall Oompa Loompa there to help you through “The Candy Man.”

Everyone gets a goodie bag. Here are the contents and instructions:

•    Whistle (Blow when Augustus Gloop gets shot through the chocolate pipe.)
•    Chocolate egg (Eat when Veruca Salt falls down the egg chute.)
•    Taffy (Chew when Mike Teavee is stretched by the taffy puller after being shrunk by Wonkavision.)
•    Purple balloon (Inflate and let go when Violet Beauregarde puffs up into a giant blueberry.)
•    Glow stick (Wave around during the boat ride.)
•    Bubbles (Let loose when Grandpa Joe and Charlie are levitating after drinking the fizzy lifting drink.)
•    An envelope (Open, and you might be the winner who gets the Golden Ticket, which comes with Music Box tickets and a Wonka Bar.)

Tickets are $12, and the magic begins at 2 p.m. Sunday.
