Twilight Saga Movie Event
The Twilight Lexicon held their annual Twilight Saga Movie Event on July 3 at the at the Carmike Cinema Thoroughbred 20 in Franklin, TN. About 325 attendees were on hand to not only watch a special viewing of Eclipse, but also to take place in the drawings for many door prizes on hand – autographed photos, posters, books and Twilight tote bags as well as other Twilight and Eclipse memorabilia.
Twilight Event Packs in the Ladies
The audience was predominantly women — women of all ages from grandmothers to young girls, and while most people came in street clothes, some came in capes, and many were wearing Twilight crowns donated by Burger King.
Actor Patrick Johnson
There was an Edward look-alike there, local actor Patrick Johnson who told me he has a part in the upcoming Mean Girls 2 movies and is hoping to get a role in Breaking Dawn. (See slideshow below)
Eclipse: Moral Values & Faith-Based Merits
An unofficial survey of movie goers revealed that quite a few felt Eclipse not only had moral values but even faith-based merits. “In Eclipse, Edward makes it clear to Bella that he will not turn her into a vampire or have sex with her until they are married,” says Jean, a Baptist from Nashville. “He tells Bella that to him, marriage is the way to say ‘I love you’ — not having sex.”
Event organizer Lori Joffs was on hand to call out the numbers for the drawings and later told me she thought the event went very well. “We went form 240 signed up last week to 325 people here today,” she stated. “That’s pretty good considering Eclipse came out on Wednesday, it’s a holiday weekend, and people are still recovering from the Nashville flood.” Joffs made sure all 325 of her happy guests went home with a prize.
