Families who buy “golden tickets” to see “Willy Wonka” at Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre on July 16 will be able to attend a post-movie chocolate-factory experience in the center’s Sky Room Cafe.

The movie begins at 11 a.m., and up to 300 people can see the film for a price of $12 per adult and $5 per child 12 and younger.

Those who opt to stay for the chocolate factory experience will instead pay $17 per adult and $15 per child, which includes the fee for the movie.

The Fantastic Funhouse chocolate factory is intended for kids 6 to 12. The children will romp with a team of Fantastic Funhouse Jesters who will assist them in making fresh chocolate lollipops and going on a goody hunt in the Garden of Candy.
