The United Palace presents a screening of the children’s classic "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" (1968), complete with an onstage, handmade, exact replica of the famous flying car. This full-size, street legal car drove Mr. Dick Van Dyke around his hometown of Danville, Illinois in 2016.
After the movie, one lucky raffle winner will be photographed in this replica car, right where Dick Van Dyke sat! The pre-show portion of this event will close with a performance by Broadway Performing Arts Center to honor the Broadway version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
For additional ticket cost (see * below), you can also attend a pre-show Meet and Greet with legendary actress, dancer, and singer Chita Rivera, who was close friends with many of the principals of the film, including star Dick Van Dyke and choreographer Dee Dee Wood.
