VVC Students Enjoy Private Screening Of ‘Avengers: Endgame’

An entire theater room at Cinemark Jess Ranch was filled with Victor Valley College students for a private screening event of “Avengers: Endgame” on Friday night.

As part of Spring Break, the Associated Student Body provided an opportunity for 100 VVC students to attend a free screening of the new Marvel Studios film. Tickets were awarded to the first 100 students to submit a 150-word response to the prompt, “What is my educational ‘Endgame?’”

The responses swiftly rolled in, each one unique to the individuals who submitted them. Some wrote about finding a job they love through a college education, others about giving back to their community.

“I want to major in graphic design and learn animation … Once I have graduated, I want to join an animation studio,” wrote Miguel Mendoza. “Most importantly, that I wake up every morning to a job that I love and look forward to. That is my educational endgame.”

Another student wrote that she will transfer upon graduating from VVC with an associates degree in criminal justice.

“The classes I am taking will all benefit my career and I hope to achieve my dream of making a difference in the world and be able to enjoy going to work everyday,” she wrote.

A dedicated Marvel fan, ASB Executive Senator Kevin Aguilar helped organize the event because he believed it would be an opportunity to “unite all students.”

“I feel like it’s a once in a generation event and thought it would be well-received by students,” Aguilar said. “It was amazing seeing how many people submitted their responses, and how quickly.”
Without giving anything away, Aguilar called Endgame “the best ending to 11 years of buildup.”

“I don’t think any movie is going to top this movie for a long time,” he said, adding, “Bring tissues.”

With a packed theater during the screening, students laughed and cried together throughout the three-hour film.

Sam Hanke, 19, said it felt like “a community event” being able to enjoy the movie experience with other VVC students.

“Most people my age started watching these when they were 8 years old. I grew up wanting to be Ironman and wanting to be Captain America,” Hanke said. “So to reach my college years and watch the conclusion, it felt like growing up and it was really cool to share that with others.”
