Before I worked at Hollywood.com, I had a job in the Parks Department of a small Indiana town. Back then, I was hardly the Twilight fan I have come to be. In fact, I unfairly regarded Twilight as silly and unsubstantial. But one day, my perspective was turned around by a strange man who paid a visit to my office. In a misguided effort to earn back his estranged daughter’s affections, the man made it his undying mission to have the first Twilight novel placed into a town time capsule that my fellow department officials and I were in the midst of comprising.
When met with resistance, the man responded by handcuffing himself to the furniture of my office and pledging not to leave until we agreed to honor his Twilight-related request. Although his actions were a tad bizarre, his message hit home. In an effort to understand the man’s motives a bit better, I sat down and read through the Twilight novels. I instantly embraced the man’s appreciation for Twilight, and have since seen (and loved) each of the films.
As you may know, the next film in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, will be coming to theaters November 18. As a celebration of the series, Summit Theaters and NCM Fathom are arranging a special event called Twilight Saga Tuesdays, which constitutes each of the three Twilight movies returning to theaters for one night only.
Twilight will be shown in participating theaters* on Tuesday, November 1, starting at 7:30 local time.
New Moon will be shown in participating theaters* on Tuesday, November 8, starting at 7:30 local time.
Eclipse will be shown in participating theaters* on Tuesday, November 15, starting at 7:30 local time.
In addition to the films, EW reports that there will be “Exclusive introductions from the cast members, compelling interviews with the stars answering the questions that Twilight Saga aficionados have always wanted answered and amazing clips from the many fan fests over the years.”
So celebrate your love for Twilight! See the films again! And then, see Breaking Dawn. It is a series to cherish.
