New Moon premiere-planning madness

The premiere of The Twilight Saga: New Moon is 18 days away and we Twilight fans must figure out our premiere plans, if we haven't already!

Several theaters are showing last year's Twilight before the midnight premiere of New Moon. Local theaters where you can catch this double feature include AMC South Barrington, Marcus Elgin Fox Ultrascreen Theatre, Kerasotes Lake in the Hills Theatre, and the Streets of Woodfield. Other theaters are taking the Twilight madness a step farther. The Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge is offering the Twilight/New Moon package deal. It's only $25 for admission to Twilight (9 PM) and New Moon (Midnight), a drink, popcorn, and souvenir New Moon cup. Plus, you get free refills on pop and popcorn. And. And! November 20 and 21 they will celebrate the premiere with Twilight celebrities. So far Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) is the first cast member announced as attending. For more information see the Pickwick Theatre website. And if you were just interested in seeing New Moon at the Pickwick, it's only $7 (Twilight is $5)! Try to find a cheaper opening night admission price than that!

There's more! On November 10 Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) will be appearing at the Fox Valley Mall in Aurora. They will do a Q & A with fans. Fans who lined up at the mall's Hot Topic store yesterday at 8 AM were given wristbands (and also had to buy a $30 New Moon tour t-shirt) so they could receive one of 500 autographed posters.

Do you have New Moon premiere plans?

UPDATE (Nov. 12): The Twilight Premiere Party and Kellan Lutz's appearances schedule for November 20-21 at the Pickwick Theatre have been cancelled. The Twilight/New Moon package deal is still available for the midnight premiere. $5 for Twilight and $7 for New Moon! $25 for the complete package!
