‘Willy Wonka,’ ‘Blazing Saddles’ Returning to Theaters

Two of the late Gene Wilder’s most beloved films will return to theaters across the U.S. this weekend. AMC Theaters announced Thursday that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Blazing Saddles will run Saturday and Sunday at 55 participating locations. Wilder died this past Sunday at age 83 of complications from Alzheimer’s disease, which the actor reportedly kept secret so as not to upset his youngest fans.
