New Moon.

Last night my sister and I went to see the highly anticipated second installment of the Twilight saga, New Moon. We’d been waiting months for it’s release, and were like giddy little schoolgirls on the way to the theater. We arrived at the Promenade about 3 hours before the movie was set to start, already there was a huge crowd of teenage girls, dressed in New Moon shirts, squawking and squealing in anticipation. My sister and I exchanged a nervous glance and made our way to the restaurant we had decided to eat at.

After we ate we made our way back to the theater to pick up our tickets. By this time the crowd had grown to include middle aged book club looking women, young 20-something’s who had managed to drag their reluctant boyfriends along, and a couple groups of 10 and under children. My sister and I exchanged another nervous glance as we elbowed our way into the lobby. Considering our showing was sold-out we decided to grab our snacks and head directly to our theater. Luckily we got there in time to still pick prime seats, and we settled in to enjoy our popcorn and take a couple cell phone pictures.

Surprisingly, the 50 minute wait for the movie to start went relatively fast, and as the lights dimmed a wave of swoons fell over the crowd. We patiently endured the previews, and everyone broke into applause as the opening credits rolled.

Despite the magnitude, and general age-group of the audience, there wasn’t too much screaming or squealing that occurred – which is what my sister and I had been so nervous about. The movie was awesome, even more-so than I expected it to be. When it was over my sister and I briefly contemplated checking to see if the next showing was sold-out or not, but considering it was already 10:30 pm, and we had an hour drive home, we decided against it.


In the meantime, Julia was with her Gramma and Papa. She must’ve had a blast with them because after we said goodbye and started heading home Julia was saying “‘Ma! Ma! Papa! Ma!” as little tears welled in her eyes. I reassured her that we’d see them again.
