‘Twilight Saga Marathon’ coming to a theater near you (video)

How much Twilight is too much Twilight? That question will soon be put to the test as movie theaters nationwide ready themselves for a groundbreaking move. Summit Entertainment announced a marathon Twilight viewing will occur on November 15, 2012 to prepare fans for the fifth and final segment The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Though there is talk of Lionsgate possibly extending the Twilight franchise, future films wouldn’t feature Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner. But let’s not think about that now, shall we? Let’s focus on the good stuff- more than eight hours of back-to-back Twilight in the form of a marathon session displayed on the silver screen.

Summit Entertainment is a division of Lionsgate films and the Twilight Saga Marathon will take place at participating theaters nationwide. Check with your local movie theaters for times and listings. As Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is scheduled for nationwide release on November 16, 2012, those who participate in the Twilight marathon viewing fest will watch Breaking Dawn Part 2 beginning at 10 p.m.
What do you think? Could you handle a Twilight marathon?

You know, a marathon of this magnitude will come with goodies right? But of course, darling! Those who purchase tickets to the show will get a special Twilight lanyard where they can keep their tickets. There will be specials aired in between the films. It isn’t clear exactly what the intermission-type Twilight themed delights will be, but it’s possible they may play behind-the-scenes footage or other Twilight related trivia.
What do you think about the final installment in the Twilight saga? Does your excitement to see the film help lessen the sadness of its finality? Have you been following Kristen Stewart’s and Robert Pattinson’s off-screen romance as well?

November 15, 2012 will also see the first time Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson walk the red carpet since Stewart’s publicized scandal with Rupert Sanders. I can’t wait to see how the couple interacts with each other and we’ll get photos from the Twilight Red Carpet event as soon as possible.
With the marathon occurring the same day as Pattinson’s and Stewart’s Red Carpet appearance, I have a feeling some of you may not see the photos until the next day! Can you handle a full day of Twilight? Do you need a refresher or would you attend the marathon just to get a chance to see the films on the silver screen again?

Of course you will need to check your own movie theaters for times and listings, but AMC movie theaters have released information for their marathon event. You may find out more about AMC The Twilight Saga Marathon here. For AMC theaters, the marathon event kicks off at 11:30 am.

Also, those interested in catching up on Twilight will find there are numerous airings on television and cable networks right now.
