Finally…the Snozberries smell like Snozberries! Come see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as you’ve never seen it before: in glorious Smell-o-vision! On July 28, Union Square becomes a Technicolor, odorlicious dreamland as tantalizing scents intensify a screening of the classic 1971 film. Wear your favorite oompa-loompa outfit and hairdo, dress up like an engorged blueberry, or enter Union Square with a somersault -- but just remember to bring your nose!
The film will screen at 8.30pm, with subtitles in Spanish. Show up at 7pm and explore the Carnival of the Nose tables, featuring interactive games and exhibits that probe the functions and meanings of smell, our most powerful sense memory.
