Gene Wilder fans have been so moved by the actor's death that they've spurred AMC Theaters to request prints of two of his most beloved films — Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles and the Roald Dahl adaptations Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory — to screen in select locations this weekend.

In 55 of those locations, the films will play as a double bill, with Willy Wonka beginning at 5pm and Blazing Saddles at 7:30.

The best part of all? Tickets for each film will cost a mere $5 each. 

This is not an unprecedented move; after Prince died earlier this year, his 1984 classic Purple Rain also returned to theaters for a limited run.
