Ahhh...Twilight. I have to admit that this photo epitomizes my thought on this subject. First off, I was not a fan of Twilight, I had no interest in the books mostly because they are about vampires and the whole thing takes place in some small woodsy town and well for those of you that know me, know that I am not a huge fan of anything that is remotely scary or that would make me second guess being in the dark at my parent's house in the woods. And yet when the movie premiered I went not expecting a whole lot...what happened was the movie was not half bad and that stirred enough interest to me reading and now on the 4th book of this series.
But really that is neither here nor there....the real story that I want to tell is about the night that I went to see this movie in Montana. I live in a small town in Western Montana and movies are shown at 7 and 9 every night. You never have to guess on the time because it never changes. So...Jenny and I head off to the 9 o'clock showing of Twilight and when we walked into the theatre we find that we are the only two at this showing. So....Twilight, Edward, Bella....two hours later and we walk out of our theatre to find a note that says "Please use this door" with an arrow showing us the way to the side door. Please note that there was not a light on or a soul in site in the ENTIRE building. We proceed outside and the door locked behind us....WE WERE THE ONLY TWO IN THE BUILDING. Yes, they literally locked us inside to watch a movie and went home.....seriously. I know there are a lot of comments about us stealing the candy and such, but honestly when I got outside after watching a VAMPIRE movie to complete darkness I was not excited at all.
