When word came earlier this week that actor Gene Wilder had died, folks took to social media to declare their affection for such classic Wilder films as Blazing Saddles, The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

This holiday weekend, fans can honor Wilder's comic genius at the Hollywood Theater, in Dormont, which is screening Blazing Saddles, the 1974 Mel Brooks's cowboy caper, and 1971's adaptation of Roald Dahl's delightfully weird and nasty kids' book, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Blazing Saddles screens: 9:30 p.m. Fri., Sept. 2; 4:30 p.m. Sun., Sept. 4; 9:30 p.m. Tue., Sept. 6; and 7 p.m. Wed., Sept. 7.

Willy Wonka screens: 7 p.m. Sat., Sept. 3; 2 p.m. Sun., Sept. 4; and 4 and 7 p.m. Mon,. Sept. 5.

UPDATE: Two other area theaters are running Wilder films in tribute.

Regent Square, in Edgewood, is showing Willy Wonka, at 8 p.m., Sun., Sept. 4, and The Producers, at 8 p.m. Sun., Sept. 11.

Row House Cinema, in Lawrenceville, has two screenings of Blazing Saddles on Sun., Sept. 11, at noon and 8 p.m.
