It’s cinema time! – Watch ‘Wonka’

On Friday 16 February we invite you to come and watch ‘Wonka’ (PG) at Stretford Public Hall, from 2pm to 4.30pm.

Released in December 2023, ‘Wonka’ is a musical fantasy film directed by Paul King, of ‘Paddington’ fame. King both wrote this latest story and co-wrote the screenplay with Simon Farnaby. It is a prequel to Roald Dahl’s 1964 novel, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and features Willy Wonka in his early days as a chocolatier.

This vivid and inventive movie tells the story of a young Willy Wonka who is chock-full of ideas and determined to change the world, one delectable bite at a time, seeking to prove that the best things in life begin with a dream, and that anything is possible.

French/American actor, Timothee Chalamet, plays Willy Wonka, and the cast includes some renowned British stars, including Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Coleman, Hugh Grant and Matt Lucas.

Drinks and snacks will be available at the bar, both before the start of the film and during the interval.
