Gene Wilder has passed away and in honor of the great comedian AMC and Warner Bros. will be screening Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Blazing Saddles in 55 of its theaters.

The screenings will start on Sept. 3 and 4 across the nation, with tickets costing only five dollars.

Blazing Saddles saw Wilder paired with his long-time collaborator Mel Brooks, while Willy Wonka featured him as the zany, but lovable candy king who always had a song in his back pocket.

Get your tickets. Grab your drinks. And don't forget your chocolate.
