What will happen to Edward and Bella? Will Renesmee survive the wrath of the Volturi? Will off-screen drama affect on-screen performance believability?
Those are just a few of the questions on the minds of movie watchers enamored with the Twilight Saga. The final installment in the series, which brings the works of author Stephenie Meyer to the big screen, debuts at 10 p.m. Nov. 15 at theaters across the country.
Much like the Harry Potter series, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, the Twilight Saga has a faithful following of those who will turn out in force for a late-night Thursday showing and likely return again once, twice or 10 times for good measure. From teenage girls to local middle school teachers and beyond, fans are poising themselves to “be there” the night of premiere.
The topic of Breaking Dawn has already become a big issue in my house where my teenage daughter can be heard on the phone scheming with her friends to snag tickets – and a ride – for the Thursday night showing. She’s counting her pennies and banking on me being cool enough not only to take them, but to give her a free pass from school on Friday.
Will I let her?
Well, let’s just say I hate spoiling an ending. What I can pass along, however, are tips on getting your tickets for the debut showing early in the Tampa Bay area. While Bloomingdale-Riverview doesn’t have its own movie theater, it’s fortunate to have a couple nearby.
Here’s where to look for advance tickets for that Thursday, Nov. 15, 10 p.m. showing:
