The Vampires vs. Werewolves argument will likely continue -- especially between their die-hard tween (and tween mom) fans -- well beyond the end of the Twilight series. But for the fans who need a fix and a good dose of Team Kristen shenanigans, there's Harkins' Twi-mania.
The day-long screening of the Twilight series leading up to the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere on November 15.
The cinematic marathon kicks off with Twilight at 10:45 a.m. and will continue with New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Part 1, and finally the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 at 10 p.m..
Fans who have read all of original Twilight series books by Stephenie Meyer already know the conclusion of Edward and Bella's rather complicated (and rather endless) love story, but serious fans will likely jump at the opportunity to relive the series on the silver screen for more almost 12 hours before they struggle to stay awake -- post-sugar crash -- for the final film.
Tickets for Twi-mania are $30 and are available now through the Harkins website or at participating Harkins theaters. Tickets include admission to all five films and a Twilight goodie bag, plus a 44oz. collector cup, two free small popcorns, one free loyalty cup, two free loyalty cup refills, and a theater full of instant Twi-hard friends.
For amateurs and Twilight fans who have day jobs, a a "Double Dawn" showing will include a screening of Breaking Dawn Part 1 at 7 p.m. followed by Breaking Dawn Part 2 at 10 p.m.. Tickets are $15.
