One high school student got the surprise of a lifetime when Dwayne Johnson treated her and her friends to a special screening of his new movie “Rampage”.
While the 45-year-old actor didn’t accept Katie’s invitation to the senior prom due to production conflicts, he did agree to treat her friends to a special night out.
Johnson announced via Instagram video that he had rented out the entire 232-seat movie theatre in her Minnesota town for the teenager and her pals to watch “Rampage”. The actor announced the movie snacks are on him.
“You’re money’s no good Katie… everything is on Uncle DJ,” he wrote on Instagram, revealing he had another surprise up his sleeve.
“I also taped a special morning message surprising Katie and her high school that will play across the school’s intercom system… literally…RIGHT NOW,” he said.
“Katie should be turning red hearing me surprise her in front of her entire school,” he continued. “I wish I was there in person Katie, to see your reaction to all this, but I’ll hear about for sure and most importantly – you and all your friends have fun at the theatre and ENJOY ‘RAMPAGE’!”
The actor posted a video of the red-faced Katie’s shocked in-class reaction to his announcement as the high school senior cried tears of joy.
“I’m a lucky, lucky man to have such amazing fans like Katie and moments like this will always be the coolest part of my job,” he writes.

I’ll take happy tears 😭 all day. Here’s my surprise morning greeting to the students of Stillwater Area High School in Minnesota, as I call out the very special young lady who asked me to her prom, the awesome Ms Katie Kelzenberg. I can’t make her prom because I’ll be in production, but as a surprise gift I bought out her local theater this weekend so she can bring 232 of her BFF’s to watch a special screening of RAMPAGE. I’m a lucky lucky man to have such amazing fans like Katie, and moments like this will always be the best and coolest part of my job. Her reaction is everything when she hears me say her name! #KatieKelzenbergCrushingLIFE #StillwaterHighSchool #AndUnlikeMe #KatieDoesntCheatOnHerTests
The teenager first caught Johnson’s attention last week when she posted a video of her prom proposal. In it, she imitates Johnson’s famous high school fanny pack photo.

SURPRISE KATIE KELZENBERG! About a week ago, I come across a video on my Twitter feed, from a student at Stillwater Area High School (oldest high school in Minnesota) asking me if I would be her date to her prom. Unfortunately, I’ll be shooting during that time in Hawaii, BUT I was so impressed by this young lady’s charm and confidence to even ask me (ladies always get shy in front of me) that I had to do something special. I decided to rent out an entire theater (capacity 232 seats) in her town so Katie and her closest 232 friends and family can enjoy a special screening of RAMPAGE. And all the free popcorn, candy and soda high school kids can consume! You’re money’s no good Katie… everything is on Uncle DJ. 🤙🏾🍿 🍭🥤!! And I also taped a special morning message surprising Katie and her high school that will play across the school’s intercom system… literally…RIGHT NOW, Katie should be turning red hearing me surprise her in front of her entire school. I wish I was there in person Katie, to see your reaction to all this, but I’ll hear about for sure and most importantly – you and all your friends have fun at the theater and ENJOY RAMPAGE! Thanks for being an AWESOME FAN and I’m a lucky dude to have fans like you. Uncle DJ 🤟🏾❤️ Ps – the gorilla in Rampage is way smarter (and better looking) than I am, but don’t tell him that because he has a HUGE ego 🦍
