Dying 'Star Wars' Fan Getting Special 'Last Jedi' Screening
The Bedford and New Boston fire departments are making it possible for Ron Villemaire to watch the new film.
A dying man's wish to see the new Star Wars movie is coming true, thanks to local fire departments and medics.
Ron Villemaire has stage 4 colon cancer and is in hospice care in Bedford, New Hampshire. He's a huge Star Wars fan, but can't get to a theater and sit in a seat.
After a public plea from his daughter, the Bedford and New Boston fire departments say they'll take him Saturday by ambulance to a theater and transfer him to a hospital bed. Medics will be on hand during Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The 69-year-old Villemaire will be joined by family and friends, as well as Darth Vader and storm troopers.
Villemaire is a U.S. Air Force veteran and will be greeted by representatives thanking him for his service.
