Join the Lincoln Theatre and Forte Chocolates as we present our third annual screening of the 1971 family musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in Smell-O-Vision!
Feast your eyes on the classic film inspired by Roald Dahl's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and treat your taste buds to delicious treats in goodie bags available for purchase.
What is Smell-O-Vision? you might ask. Smell-O-Vision was a system that released odor during the projection of a film so that the viewer could "smell" what was happening in the movie. The technique was created by Hans Laube and made its only appearance in the 1959 film Scent of Mystery. The staff of the Lincoln Theatre is hard at work recreating that failed attempt ofor this screening!
Sing a long with Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket and Grandpa Joe, as the last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner leads five young winners, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Arthur Slugworth on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory.
