This loving tribute to Gene Wilder celebrates his life and legacy as the comic genius behind an extraordinary string of film roles, from his first collaboration with Mel Brooks in “The Producers,” to the enigmatic title role in the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” to his inspired on-screen partnership with Richard Pryor in movies like “Silver Streak.” It is illustrated by a bevy of touching and hilarious clips and outtakes, never-before-seen home movies, narration from Wilder’s audiobook memoir, and interviews with a roster of brilliant friends and collaborators, including Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, and Carol Kane.

“Remembering Gene Wilder” shines a light on an essential performer, writer, director, and all-around mensch.

Ticket price includes popcorn and drink!

Special guest, director and co-writer Glenn Kirschbaum, will be joining us live to introduce the film and facilitate a Q&A after the film.
