LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock is invited to a world of pure imagination! Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lubbock is hosting The Ultimate Willy Wonka Party in honor of the late Gene Wilder on September 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The stars who played Mike TeeVee and Veruca Salt from the original Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory will be in Lubbock to do a live Q&A after the screening of the movie.

While the party is infinitely safer than the tour featured in the film, it is just as exciting! Ever wonder what happened after Mike TeeVee became six inches tall? And did Veruca really end up in the furnace? What was it like to work with Gene Wilder? Who better to answer those questions than actors Paris Themmen and Julie Dawn Cole, who played Mike TeeVee and Veruca Salt in the 1971 film.

During the screening, guests will receive bags of candy, props, and have the opportunity to quote a-long with one of everyone’s favorite movies.

After the screening, guests will have an opportunity to chat with Themmen and Cole during the Q&A.

Tickets can be purchased at drafthouse.com/lubbock.
