The Internet Helps Man Pull Off Ultimate Surprise Movie Theater Proposal

The Internet Helps Man Pull Off Ultimate Surprise Movie Theater Proposal

One man used the power of the Internet to help him pull off the ultimate movie theater proposal.


Lee Loechler spent over six months perfecting his proposal to girlfriend, Sthuthi David. Lee is a filmmaker and Sthuthi’s favorite movie is ‘Sleeping Beauty.’

So, when it came time to propose, Lee wanted to incorporate this Disney classic in a very special way. He set out to find an illustrator who could make a custom animation that he could insert into the film. The plan was to showcase this unique rendition of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ at a movie theater with Sthuthi in attendance. But that initial request turned in to so much more. Lee connected with an illustrator all the way in Australia who was known for her Disney artwork.

After she completed the animation, Lee secured the Coolidge Corner Theatre in the couple's hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts. He created a fake e-mail from the theater and enlisted the help of Sthuthi’s family to invite her to a one-night-only screening of the film.

Lee wanted to have friends and family in the crowd, but he knew that would look too suspicious. That’s when he put out a call on the Internet on the Reddit platform asking for anyone in the Massachusetts area that would be willing to take part in the proposal. And the Internet replied in waves.

This viral clip shows the entire movie theater proposal and Sthuhi’s stunned face when Lee gets down on one knee.

On Instagram, Lee wrote about the incredible moment. "The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we'd get to live happily ever after together." We are wishing this couple a lifetime of happiness.
