Entire Theatre Rented Out So Cancer Patients Can Watch Avengers: Endgame

Entire Theatre Rented Out So Cancer Patients Can Watch Avengers: Endgame

Two Marvel fans have done the work of real-life superheroes and booked out an entire theatre to screen Avengers: Endgame for cancer patients and sick children.

The screening has been organised by Dillon Hill and Clay Stevens, who are always trying to help people with cancer get their bucket lists ticked off through their charity, One List One Life.

Their latest good deed was inspired by Lexi, who was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in 2017 and given a 17 per cent chance of surviving. Since then, the charity has helped her tick many things off her list, such as visiting Universal Studios, playing with a pile of puppies and swimming with dolphins.

Number four on her list is her dream of meeting 'any Marvel actor'. Now, obviously this was going to be trickier to arrange than a trip to Universal Studios, so Mr Hill and Mr Stevens had to think outside of the box.


By renting out an entire theatre at Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin, California, USA, the pair are hoping they will generate enough buzz online to catch the attention of Marvel.

The charity isn't necessarily expecting the gesture to secure a face-to-face meet for Lexi, but they're hoping they may be able to arrange a video message to put a smile on her face - and all of the faces in the audience for that matter.

"We will be documenting it all, so hopefully we can bring some joy and surprises."

The charity hope as their community grows, they will be able to harness the power of social media to make dreams come true for more and more people.

They said: "Our end goal for the series as a whole is to build a large enough community where we can do awesome stuff like this for other people.

"As an example, we're helping a young Stage 4 cancer patient with his bucket list and one of the things he wants to do is meet The Rock. We plan on building a WWE ring in our back yard as an attempt to raise some viral awareness."

Here's hoping they succeed, and maybe inspire more people to use social media for good.

The Avengers: Endgame screening will take place on 29 April, three days after the film is released.
