‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’
You don’t need a golden ticket to catch this FREE screening of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” starring Gene Wilder as Roald Dahl’s kooky chocolatier. Head over to Brooklyn Bridge Park for the latest in the Syfy Movies With a View series. Nothing to watch and so much to pay. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it. (Thursday night, DJs at 6 p.m., movie at sundown, FREE, Harbor View Lawn, Pier 1 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Furman Street, Brooklyn Heights, brooklynbridgepark.org)

Intrepid’s Second Annual SpaceFest
Ah, space. The final frontier. Certainly infinite enough to spend a whole weekend exploring. Stop by the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for the second annual SpaceFest, which will feature interactive displays, activities, astronaut appearances, exhibits and presentations. All events are FREE with museum admission, but for the true Cheap$kate in you, stop by for a totally FREE astronomy night on Saturday and you can hone your stargazing skills with high-powered telescopes and demos on space science from local astronomers; or check out a FREE screening of “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” — the one from 1979 with William Shatner — Friday on the flight deck of the Intrepid. (Screening, Friday, 7:30 p.m.; Astronomy Night, Saturday, 8-10:30 p.m.; FREE, Intrepid Flight Deck, Pier 86, 46th Street and 12th Avenue, intrepidmuseum.org)
