'Twilight Night' Will Also Occur in Canada!

It was previously announced (here), that Twilight Night would be occurring on June 26th [to coincide with the lunar eclipse] in 12 different cities: Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, & Washington DC. Well, today it was revealed that Twilight Night will also be occurring in Vancouver and Toronto, too!

Fans of the Twilight franchise will get a chance to celebrate the release of Eclipse under the shadow of a real eclipse.

Looking to ramp up anticipation for the third installment in the Stephenie Meyer vampire series, and thank the multitude of fans for their undying support of the undead, Summit Entertainment in the U.S. and Canada’s E1 entertainment are staging a series of open-air screenings on Saturday.

Events are taking place all across North America, but only two Canadian cities — Vancouver and Toronto — will get the free party.

The Vancouver event will take place at Wolfson Field at UBC Thunderbird Park — doors open at 6 p.m. and the screening takes place at 9 p.m, while Toronto’s is located at Harbourfront Centre’s Sirius Stage.

The date marks the first lunar eclipse of the year, according to NASA, which estimates the Earth’s shadow will pass over the moon “east of the Lagoon Nebula” and be visible to most of the Americas, weather permitting.

Though Eclipse will only hit theaters June 30, the free events will feature door prizes from the new movie, a “turn-yourself-into-a-vampire” booth and a free screening of the preceding chapter in the series, New Moon.

“The fans of Twilight have been so loyal, that we wanted to give them something back,” Coy said.
