Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be screened at 55 AMC locations throughout the country September 3-4. Tickets are priced at $5. Approximately 145 non-AMC cinemas will also screen Willy Wonka this weekend.
Willy Wonka was released in 1971, while Blazing Saddles hit movie theatres in 1974. Both films are currently part of the Warner Bros. Classics library. The Wonka film is based on the same source material as the forthcoming Broadway musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which uses one song from the film, “Pure Imagination.”
