    What may have felt like a movie script actually played out in real life for some lucky moviegoers in Vacaville, California Saturday afternoon.

    Chris Pratt, a star in the recently released "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" movie, surprised those in attendance who were both at the Brenden Theatres location to catch the flick and participate in a charitable auction designed to raise funds for children of law enforcement officials suffering from cancer, according to Vacaville police.

    Why did the famous movie star step foot in the theater in the Solano County city? His brother, Daniel "Cully" Pratt, is a deputy with the Solano County Sheriff's Department.

    Daniel Pratt worked together with Bruce Simpson, an official with Brenden Theatres, to pull off the celebrity surprise and organize the charity event, police stated.
