Charlie and the Chocolate Messina

WATCH the movie, eat a Messina Wonka Bar, and be in with the chance of winning a years supply of Messina! Interested? Make like Charlie Bucket and get to OUR GOLDEN AGE to get your ticket for the screening.

We've teamed up with our friends at Our Golden Age in Surry Hills to guest present Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. We often feel like we could be Charlie, here in our gelato factory, just not quite so young (we all look a bit more like Grandpa Joe in real life). We're screening the original 1971 version (sorry Jonny Depp fans). Included in the ticket price is our own tribute to those scrumdiddlyumptious Wonka Bars, one of which will contain a MESSINA GOLDEN TICKET!

23RD MARCH @ 8.30PM - there's only 55 seats in the cinema so get in quick.

If you want to be Augustus Gloop, and the first one to find a golden ticket (no drinking from the chocolate river), the person who finds the Messina Golden Ticket will WIN a years supply of MESSINA. Yep, that's a real thing - the ticket entitles the bearer to FREE GELATO for one whole year. That's 365 scoops, however way you want to split it. T&C'S here.


HOUSE RULES - no chewing gum, selfish, rotten brats or excessive TV watchers. Oompa-Loompas will be granted free entry (ok we're joking, if you go to the lengths as dressing up as one, green hair or not, we're afraid there won't be space for you)
