WATERTOWN — With golden tickets in hand, about 200 lined up Saturday morning to watch the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” as part of the Snowtown Film Festival.

Along with the showing of the film, based on Roald Dahl’s popular children’s book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” moviegoers were treated to a rare appearance by the former child actor Peter Ostrum.
