To honor the passing of Gene Wilder Monday, the Transit Drive-In will play a Wilder double feature this Labor Day weekend.

On September 2-5, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will play, followed by Blazing Saddles.

Wilder died due to complications from Alzheimer's disease. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales this weekend will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association of Western New York.
