Charles Chocolates Concludes Summer Movie Series in Wonkavision

Categories: Sweet Beat


For months, the Charles Chocolates factory in Emeryville has planned to show Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Friday as the final and most appropriate installment of its summer movie series. But in an exciting twist of fate, the evening will now be a double-feature and screen the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as well. Proprietor Chuck Siegel won't be serving fizzy lifting drinks, but he will have his sinfully rich hot chocolate and caramel corn at the ready, fueling the buzz for the inevitable Johnny Depp vs. Gene Wilder debates. The show starts at 9 p.m. and is free; RSVP here. -- Tamara Palmer
