After an exhausting vote Screen Cinema has finally unveiled the winner of its viewers choice poll ‘Play it again, Sam’, which allowed cinema-goers the chance to vote their favourite classic back onto the big screen.

The choices ranged from cult classics like Troll 2, through proper old-school movies like The Great Dictator, Casablanca and Gone With the Wind, right up to modern greats like The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Two winners were selected, the beloved children’s classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Audrey Hepburn‘s star turn as Holly Golightly in Blake Edwards‘ classic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Willy Wonka will be shown in a special one off screening June 14th at 8.30pm, with Breakfast at Tiffany’s enjoying a week long run starting July 16th. Tickets will be available for Willy Wonka from June 7th, from the box-office at Screen Cinema.

Team Screen plan to make this a monthly event, with the audience able to vote online via Twitter or Facebook, by email, or in person via a drop-box in the lobby of the cinema.

Screen has long been one of my favourite places to watch movies, and events like this highlight just why that is the case.

Update: Book your Willy Wonka tickets online now!

    That’s actually pretty cool. I love the Screen. I remember reading that they are organising a table quiz with the top prize of a private screening of your choice. Which sounds pretty awesome.
