You can see 'Willy Wonka' and 'Blazing Saddles' for $5 in theaters this weekend
Gene Wilder fans have been so moved by the actor's death that they've spurred AMC Theaters to request prints of two of his most beloved films -- Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles and the Roald Dahl adaptations Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory -- to screen in select locations this weekend.
In 55 of those locations, the films will play as a double bill, with Willy Wonka beginning at 5pm and Blazing Saddles at 7:30.
The best part of all? Tickets for each film will cost a mere $5 each.
This is not an unprecedented move; after Prince died earlier this year, his 1984 classic Purple Rain also returned to theaters for a limited run.
