A special premiere of the new movie “Wonder,” hosted by Marcus Theatres, recently brought in more than $100,000 for the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Business and community leaders gathered on Nov. 15 for Marcus Theatres’ second annual Hollywood Movie Night, which included a screening of the movie at Marcus Majestic Cinema of Brookfield two days before the movie opened to the public.
The event raised a total of $104,000.
“Wonder,” which is based on The New York Times bestseller, tells the story of a boy born with facial differences who overcomes obstacles. The movie stars Julia Roberts.
Last year, the inaugural Hollywood Movie Night, which included a screening of the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” brought in $73,000 for the Herma Heart Center at Children’s Hospital.
