LACMA presents Tuesday afternoon screenings of classic films throughout the year as part of the Tuesday Matinees series. Every month features a distinct theme.
A sweet boy from a poor family dreams of finding one of five golden tickets hidden inside chocolate bar wrappers which will admit him to the eccentric and reclusive Willy Wonka's magical factory. One after another, tickets are discovered by ghastly children—but will the lad find the last remaining one and have all his dreams come true?
