FBC November Movie Night [11.9.18]

The world was astounded when Willie Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate. Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but his family is so poor that even buying one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five gold tickets is unlikely in the extreme. But in movieland, magic an happen. Charlie, along with four somewhat odious other children, win the chance of a lifetime. During the tour, mild disasters befall each of the winners, but can Charlie beat the odds and grab the brass ring? Join us at 6:30 p.m. Free popcorn and water.
