Honolulu Sees Glimpses of Twilight

As I write this post, dozens of Twi-Hards are seeing the newest chapter in the Twilight Saga, New Moon, unspool in theaters. Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year or so Twilight mania has been sweeping the nation ever since the widely popular novels were slated for silver screen adaption. The most extreme case I heard of Twilight mania was about a woman (on Oahu mind you) that saw Twilight 109 times in theaters. No, that’s not a typo (edit–ok it was a typo, 108).

Check out the fandom that turned out at the two biggest theaters in town:

The upper deck at Ward Theaters was the obvious choice to hold lines, but it quickly filled up.

But then you walk to the main staircase and see that lines are forming all over the front down to the sidewalk.

Another shot of the main staircase from the front.

It's just a sea of people from the top of the stairs.

Inside, every line to the concession stand was open and full.

Over at Dole it was a similar story. They had one long line that stretched down the front of the theaters . . .

. . . and into the parking lot and further towards Pacific Street.

And here’s video to give you a better idea of how long the line at Dole was:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Needless to say it was a busy night at the movies and I’m sure we’ll be hearing about record numbers for Twilight: New Moon in the coming days. As for us, we’re going to wait till the insanity dies down a bit before we take in the Twilight.
