A "Sing Out!" Matinee Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory

A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men." - Willy Wonka
Here at Fleur de Lethal we exuberantly relish in not only nonsense
but, also the magic of the cinema ( and in particular,the combination of the two.)
On May 19th we invite the whole family out for a day of nonsense, cinema and CANDY
for a special "Sing Out" Matinee of "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory" at the dazzling Hollywood Theatre.

This 1971 classic starring Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka follows 5 lucky
children as they are granted unprecedented access to the most
eccentric candy factory in the world.
The tour quickly takes a turn as outrageous ( and hilarious)
misfortunes befall the naughty children and their indulgent parents leaving
Mr. Wonka to wonder are there any good children left in the world?

As with all Fleur de Lethal events the movie is only part of the event.
We encourage you to dress up as a character OR your favorite candy
and bring interactive props ( bubbles for fizzy lifting drinks?) to play along.
The audience is welcome to sing, dance, boo and cheer as we join
our hero Charlie Bucket on the adventure of a lifetime, full of "pure imagination"

The "Sing Out" Series

With the rise of shows like GLEE and an ever increasing roster of musical titles being added to
Hollywood's production schedules it is safe to say- The Movie Musical is BACK.

The "Sing Out!" Series is a collection of music based films and musicals that though not
deemed a "sing a long" are certainly films we love to sing to.
Ridiculous,outlandish,lavish,lovely and not always plausible-musicals ask us to suspend our disbelief
and embrace not the realities of life as it is but the fantasy of life as it could be.
( and if you ask FdL curator Nico Bella "Life as it SHOULD be")

The 2012 "Sing Out!" Calendar includes Xanadu,O Brother, Where Art Thou?,The 5th Annual Moulin Rouge Spectacular Spectacle
and The RETURN of Cabaret! These unique screenings encourage audience participation
So when you come out to a show dress up,dance,holler,laugh and most important- SING!
