Eye Candy

Oompa-Loompa, doompadee doo, Watters Creek has a movie for you. On Thursday, the 1971 scrumdiddlyumptious classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be featured on a two-story inflatable screen at Watters Creek. Just think about how creepy Gene Wilder will look on a surface that large. The feature presentation is part of the shopping center's weekly Big Screen on the Green event, which shows family-friendly movies Thursday evenings through June 18. Enter a world of pure imagination at 8 p.m. on the Village Green. Oh, and it's free. Getting something for nothing kinda feels like stumbling across a golden ticket, doesn't it? Cha-ching! The Woodlands American Grill will also serve snacks and dinner, all priced less than $10. And whose sweet tooth isn't activated by Wonka's magical chocolate factory? C'mon, Wonka Bars, meal-flavored bubble gum, snozzberries and a chocolate river? Fuggedaboutit. Luckily, Paciugo will serve four flavors of their tasty gelato throughout the film. Watters Creek is located at 970 Garden Park Drive in Allen. For more information and the rest of the Big Screen on the Green movie schedule, call 972-747-8000 or visit watters-creek.com.
