DC's Screen on the Green: Willy Wonka

I've been enjoying "Screen on the Green" each summer in DC since I interned here in 2007.  HBO and Comcast set up a giant television screen on the National Mall and showcase movies on Monday evenings.  I don't always love the movies, but recently they played one of my favorites: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!


As a child, I may or may not have recorded this movie off of TBS one day (on VHS) so that I could re-watch it whenever I had a candy craving.


Imagining a real-life chocolate room was enough to tempt me to watch it over and over again!


In celebration of all things sweet and candy, Kern, Carolyn, Jordan and I brought plenty of sweets to share during the movie.  Oreos, mini chocolate bars, gummy bears...and homemade blackberry ice cream.  It was a sugar feast worthy of Willy Wonka himself!


"The Candy Man can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good..."
