El Paso is invited to a world of pure imagination! Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo is hosting The Ultimate Willy Wonka Party with two of the original kids from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory on September 14, 2016 at 7:30 pm.
While the party is infinitely safer than the tour featured in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, it is just as exciting! Ever wonder what happened after Mike TeeVee became six inches tall? And did Veruca really end up in the furnace? Who better to answer those questions than actors Paris Themmen and Julie Dawn Cole, who played Mike TeeVee and Veruca Salt in the 1971 film!
During the screening of the film guests will receive bags of candy, props, and have the opportunity to quote along with one of everyone’s favorite movies. After the screening, guests will have an opportunity to chat with Paris Themmen (Mike TeeVee) and Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt) during a Q&A.
“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a classic film that everyone loves, so this party is going to be a blast,” said Robert Saucedo, Programming Director for Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations in El Paso, Houston, and Lubbock. “The whole experience is enhanced by the presence of two of the film’s stars, Paris Themmen and Julie Dawn Cole, who can offer some insight into working on the set of such an iconic film. Maybe they can even answer some questions about what happened to their characters after the movie ended!”
Tickets to the screening followed by a Q&A with the actors who played Mike TeeVee and Veruca Salt can be purchased HERE.
