Say it. Out loud. Twilight Tuesdays!
Today sucked hard as all Mondays do, but then I got the most intriguing email from Jenny Jerkface...
Subject: Some random bitchy email chain
So are we going to go see Twilight again?
Honestly, I was totally befuddled... Back when Twilight was in the theaters, JJ and I (who were not as open about our obsession as we are now) sneaked off multiple times to go see Twilight matinees, unbeknownst to either ML or Mr. Snarky. There was much hand-clutching, snorteling, discreet wearing of Twi-gear, and smugness about our ability to do this on the sly. It was like the end of Thelma and Louise but without the implied deadness. After we got over our initial shock that the movie was not really like the trailer that we had watched approximately 1,256,638 times in the weeks leading up to the release of the movie, it was all good and we needed a near-weekly fix.
We saw the other movies in the theaters multiple times, but nothing was ever like Twilight. It was like the first time you had sex, if it had been as good as you'd wanted it to be and you'd had an orgasm instead of the shitty reality.
So her email was...tantalizing, to say the least. And I had no idea what she was talking about. Was her email sent from the past? From the future where someone finally pays us insane amounts of money to blog and we have a private theater for exclusive Twilight viewings (note: when this happens, you are all invited)?
So I replied with
Subject: bitchy email chain says WHAT?!
Is this a trick question???
At which point she told me that Twitter had been all aflutter with it and people who actually pay attention to what's going on in the Twidom were already making plans. Apparently, on each Tuesday in November prior to the release of Breaking Dawn Before the Spawn, select movie theaters will be playing Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse (in sequence) on Tuesday nights. To be honest, I have no burning need to see New Moon or Eclipse in the theater again. I am not sure I've even taken my copy of Eclipse out of the cellophane (feel free to light the torches and cast me out of the fandom now). But Twilight??? I would never miss an opportunity to watch this on the big screen again...
Go to HERE to see if a theater in your area is participating! JJ and I will definitely be at the theater for Twilight, and we'll be dragging Myg and Sister Snarky along if they are semi-willing and have babysitters and all that other grown-up stuff attended to... What about YOU??? Say it! Out loud! In the comments...
Update: I forgot to mention that it's rumored (or possibly confirmed - I'm tired and too lazy to go research this properly) that there will be some "extras" with each of these showings - previously unreleased interviews with the cast, stuff like that (probably NOT the original audition footage shot on CH's bed, but I can dream...). So if you have never seen Twilight on the big screen before, I definitely recommend going (and I am sure those of you who HAVE seen a three-foot-tall bronze bouffant in the past will already be queuing up for an encore viewing).
