Twilight Monte Carlo Sign Up For Auction

As Twilight trivia fans know, the prom in the movie version of Twilight had a Monte Carlo theme and it was shot at The View Point Inn in Corbett, Oregon.

The View Point In was severely damaged by fire last year. There has been a lot of press coverage coming out of the Portland area that chronicle everything from allegations of owner mismanagement, negligence regarding unpaid insurance, to issues with the former owner erecting a poster of himself semi-naked in a Christ-like pose blaming the government for no one wanting to help a rebuild under his leadership. In any case the historic building went in to bankruptcy proceedings, has now been removed from the former owners’ hands, and is now in the hands of a trustee.

At the time of the time of the fire the inn had a significant number of props/set pieces that were left over from the filming. As they don’t really have historic significance as far a a building commission would be concerned, it’s not surprising to see them cropping up at auction.

The Monte Carlo sign is now up on EBay. TY to Jack Morrissey for the tip.


EDITED:
As our astute commenters have pointed out, it pays to read the fine print! Apparently they are auctioning a single light bulb and not the sign itself!

    The link to this page is for the Monte Carlo sign LIGHTBULBS, not the acutal sign! I went to make a bid, and then read further down that it is for ONE lightbulb. Don’t get duped by their heading!

  2. Yes it is just for ONE LIGHTBULB not the whole sign. Deceiving title and I will not be bidding.

  3. As stated above-the auction is NOT for the actual Monte Carlo sign that was used in the Twilight Prom scene at View Point Inn, Corbett, Oregon. It is for ONE removed light bulb from the actual sign with a one minute video clip showing the removal and comes with the bulb. By the way-shipping for one bulb is now $15.00. Originally the shipping was $25.00.

  4. Haha. ;)

  5. That is absolutely ridiculous.

  6. Who the hell wants to bid on a light bulb? What a bunch of douche-bags.

  7. I stayed at the View Point Inn a few years ago. it was amazing. I am glad I got to check it out before the fire. I even took pics under the sign.

  8. Looks like they listed another bulb from the sign. They must have a few of them!
