Join us for the first of our classic family films on the big screen for your family to enjoy. A great way to share your childhood films with your own kids! Twenty-five years after this merry movie charmed audiences with a colourful mix of song, humour and life lessons, the Candy Man still wields magic, especially now in a vibrant new print with a soundtrack in true stereo. From the classic Roald Dahl story comes a lip-smacking delight with jolly tunes, among them The Candy Man and Pure Imagination. With a golden ticket young Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) wins a tour of the factory of wily mogul Wonka (Gene Wilder) and run by his Oompa-Loompa crew. There Charlie, his Grandpa Joe (Jack Albertson) and others discover a kind heart is a finer possession than a sweet tooth. Don't let the tour leave without you!
*Free mini bag of sweets and juice for children included in the ticket.
