Movie-goers in Harford County were treated to burgers and fries along with the main attraction on Saturday, when comedian Pete Davidson bought McDonald’s fare for the entire audience during a showing of Avengers: Endgame.

In Maryland for a standup performance with comic John Mulaney at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Saturday night, Davidson stopped at the AMC Classic Churchville 7 cinema complex with friends to catch the new Avengers movie before heading to Baltimore for his own performance.

While in Churchville, the Saturday Night Live cast member ordered food from a nearby McDonald’s for the audience and the theater staff to enjoy during the movie, which lasts more than three hours. According to The New York Post, which first reported the generous gesture, the tab came to $400.

Davidson, 25, later posted a photo of himself on Instagram at the movie theater, which is close to Harford Community College, and a shot riding in a car to the Meyerhoff and wearing the same Grateful Dead sweatshirt, with a caption reading “See ya tonight, Baltimore!”

The Maryland audience is apparently in good company in getting a free meal from Davidson, who recently broke up with actress Kate Beckinsale. In January, he picked up the tab during a guys-night-out dinner at Nobu Malibu with Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and Timothee Chalamet.
