Two Marvel fans have gone the extra mile and booked out an entire theatre to screen Avengers: Endgame for cancer patients and sick children.
Dillon Hill and Clay Stevens, the pair behind the charity One List One Life, are about to spread a lot of joy around them-- they have rented out a full theater in the Sacramento, California area to provide free access to Avengers: Endgame to cancer patients and those admitted at a local children's hospital.
One List One Life is a charity that uses digital media to help those suffering from cancer accomplish some of their dreams. This new mission began with Lexi, a patient diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in 2017. As it so happens, one of Lexi's dreams on her bucket list is to meet a Marvel actor.
The charity has already helped her make some of her dreams come true -visiting Universal Studios, playing with puppies, and swimming with dolphins. Number four on her list is her dream of meeting "any Marvel actor". By renting out an entire theatre at Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin, California, the pair are hoping they will generate enough buzz online to catch the attention of Marvel.
40 hours of watching movies later and we have completed #AvengeSarcoma! All 19 Marvel movies in one sitting...BUT WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE #4 on Lexi's bucket list possible. Tweet at Marvel and the Avengers and let them know she wants to 'Meet a Marvel Actor'. @Avengers pic.twitter.com/xhM2C0AnO0— One List One Life (@onelistonelife) August 7, 2018
While the charity isn't necessarily expecting the gesture to secure a real meeting for Lexi, they told ComicBook.com they are hoping they may be able to at least arrange a video message.
"Our end goal for this event is to have a theatre 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," the One List One Lift team explained.
They added, "We will be documenting it all, so hopefully we can bring some joy and surprises."
The charity hopes to use social media to make dreams come true for more and more people. The Avengers: Endgame screening will take place on April 29, three days after the film is released. Other upcoming Marvel Studios projects include Captain Marvel on March 8 and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5.
