Charity Rents Out Entire Theater So That Children With Cancer Can Watch 'Avengers: Endgame'

The Feels

Charity plans free screening for patients at local children's hospital.

In just 54 days millions of Marvel fans will start packing theaters to catch Avengers: Endgame, including one very special screening for children with cancer thanks to efforts of some real-life superheroes.


When it comes to saving the world Dillon Hill and Clay Stevens are just trying to do it one person at a time.

In 2017 the pair dropped out of college and quit their jobs to help their friend Chris, who had been diagnosed with cancer, check off items on his bucket list.

Now Dillon and Clay are reaching out to others like Chris to help them complete their bucket lists through their charity One LIst One Life.

Their latest mission is to help out Lexi who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in 2017 and happens to be a big fan of Marvel.

Along with crossing the Golden Gate bridge and swimming with dolphins, meeting a Marvel actor was high on Lexi's bucket list.

Dillon and Clay were inspired by Lexi's wish but wanted to dream even bigger.

On Tuesday Dillon made a Reddit post announcing that they had rented out an entire theater in Sacramento and planned on holding a screening of Avengers: Endgame for cancer patients and local kids in the hospital.

"We like to think big," Dillon wrote in the Reddit post.

"We thought we would try and make this a life changing event for her and other people that have been effected by cancer."

Realizing it might be tough to arrange a face-to-face meeting with one of the Marvel cast though the team came up with a plan.

"Our end goal for this event is to have a theater full of people that have been greatly affected by cancer, including Lexi, then surprise them with a video from some of the cast and crew," they told ComicBook.com.

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

While people were excited about the idea the biggest hurdle the One Life One List team faces is getting the attention of the folks at Marvel, but the team believes in the power of social media.

"Our biggest obstacle is to get enough attention to get some of the actors to record a video." Dillon writes in the post.

"Tweeting, sharing, etc seems like the best way to help...maybe we can come up with a cool hashtag?"

Soon Reddit users came up with the hashtag #AvengerStrong and began spreading it on Twitter.

Now people are working to get the word out there.









Hopefully for Lexi and the One Life team word has already gotten to the people at Marvel who can make this happen.

The One Life One List team says the free Avengers: Endgame screening is planned for April 29th at Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin, California starting at 12 p.m.
