Sun-Ray Party Goes Viral

Teenager’s video game birthday bash gets picked up by Gawker and Reddit

Posted:

A 13-year-old Jacksonville boy had the coolest birthday ever when his father rented a movie theater, and Jonah and his friends got to play video games for five hours on the big screen. Now the video of his party has gone viral, with hundreds of hits on Gawker and Reddit.

Jonah’s father, Travis, rented out Sun-Ray Cinema in Five Points for five hours for $300 and supplied unlimited beverages and pizza to his guests.

But the coolest part was the ability to play all the top video games including “Dead Space 2,” “Minecraft,” “Halo” and “Portal” on the theater’s giant screen.

His father said Jonah is an awesome kid and deserved an awesome party. He said Jonah has Type 1 diabetes and regularly does fundraising events for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Walk To Cure Diabetes.
