Fans of the "Twilight" series can settle in for six-plus hours of Bella, Edward and Jacob at area theaters Tuesday night. To prepare for special midnight showings of the third film in the series, "Eclipse," three area theaters will show the first two films, "Twilight" and "New Moon," as a double feature starting at 7 p.m. Participating theaters, according to their websites, are Northgate 14, Majestic 12 and East Ridge 18. All area theaters have scheduled midnight screenings of "Eclipse."
The International Movie Database, an online source of information on movies, television and celebrities, has launched a comprehensive and interactive "Twilight" special section at www.imdb.com/thetwilightsaga.
Among its features:
