One college summer, I held a receptionist temp job at one of the old candy factories near Central Square, during which time I inhaled residual candy fumes to a point of blissful delusion. Today, Sharon reports on the multisensory magic to take place in Union Square this weekend:
“Whether you take you babe or get a sitter to have a night out with your honey, you’ll most definitely be brought back into a childlike wonder with the Somerville Art Council’s screening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory… in smell-o-vision!
Hitting Union Square (Somerville) this Saturday (July 28; rain date July 29), this event will feature a host of tables featuring smelling games at 7pm and then the showing of the movie at 8:30pm with Spanish subtitles (and intensified by tantalizing scents!). Visitors are welcome to dress the part, whether as an Oompa Loompa, Charlie, or even Willy Wonka himself. If it is anything like the Fluff-fest that I went to last year, you will most certainly have a good chuckle and best of all, it’s free!”
