    Iconic actor and comedian Gene Wilder has died. Wilder brought Willy Wonka to life in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” a role for which he will always be remembered. The same goes for his comedic turn in "Young Frankenstein" and a number of other Mel Brooks movies. His nephew says Wilder died in Connecticut from complications from Alzheimer's disease. He was 83.

    The beloved actor Gene Wilder died this week, but his fans will be able to revisit two of his biggest roles at some movie theaters across the country over the weekend.

    "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and "Blazing Saddles" will be screened at 55 AMC theaters Saturday and Sunday (see a list below).

    The chain did the same thing this year following Prince's death, when it screened "Purple Rain."

    The tickets are $5, but the screenings are only being held at each theater once a day (5 p.m. for "Willy Wonka," 7:30 p.m for "Blazing Saddles") so consider buying them online in advance.
