According to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, the actors will answer questions including "what it was like to be so tiny and find out what happened to Veruca after she got dumped down the Bad Egg shoot."
Additionally, the theater will be providing audience members with a special edition "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" poster that's signed by both Themmen and Cole.
At the time of publication, the special screening was about half sold out.
