AMC theaters showing Willy Wonka and Blazing Saddles Labor Day weekend to honor Gene Wilder


It's twue, it's twue!

When Gene Wilder died earlier this week, there was a massive outpouring of love for the man, which is a testament to the work he did and the impact he had on so many lives. To honor the late Wilder, AMC theaters is bringing two of his best films back to the big screen.

At select AMC theaters nationwide this weekend, you will be able to see Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka will play at 5:00pm, and Blazing Saddles will play at 7:30pm. Tickets for each film will be only $5. (AMC did something similar earlier in the year with Purple Rain after the death of Prince.)
