So You Want To Camp Out For the Eclipse Premiere

As many of you know the premiere for Eclipse is at a venue that is completely different than the venue that was used for both Twilight and New Moon, which was a somewhat more suburban area with significant public property. Because of this new location, security regulations in a large urban area, the fact the a film festival is also going on, and we are dealing with a significant spread of private property the following arrangement (which is unprecedented in the amount of generosity being afforded fans in that they are being allowed to camp out on private property for almost a week ) has been negotiated:

“Fans can start camping to see the event of the year – THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE red carpet premiere – on Monday, June 21 at 6am PT. LA Live is not public property, and will not allow camping before that date/time. You also can not camp on the streets around LA Live( as per the LAPD!).

It is also our understanding that there will be a strict wristband or similar system pegged to time of arrival. There is no saving of spots a la Comic Con style. So, if you want a spot, get there, cooperate with local authorities, and hope for the best.

So i f you are LA bound, we’ll see you there. Alphie and Pel will be there. It’s Alphie’s turn to work the red carpet. Pel will visit you guys on line.

The location is the LA Live Nokia Theater…see you there!

How to Get Tickets For the Eclipse Premiere

eclipse-posterOK, time to break this down so folks understand what they are getting for their money. First the official Summit statement, then we’ll break it down for you.

The official premiere of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is on June 24 at Nokia in LA Live during the Los Angeles Film Festival also known as the LAFF.

Passes go on sale May 10th, and can only be purchased via the LAFF site. Note the portion of the pass that gets you into Eclipse is non-transferable and name specific. This is what stops scalpers from buying them up. You’ll probably have to show ID. Please note that only the more expensive passes get you in to see Eclipse, but they come with other perks for the film festival.

These passes get you into the 7,000 seat Nokia where the cast, production team, and industry guests will be viewing the film. There are LIMITED seats. Expect them to be nosebleed and rejoice if they are better! Chances of sitting near any star is slim to none, those areas are roped off. Think of it like the movie Titanic. The Twilight cast and crew are Kate Winslet and the fans are Leo Dicaprio stuck in steerage.  Still a cool ship and a great experience, but we’re getting hamberger and they have filet minon.

These high end passes DO NOT grant you access to the red carpet. If  fans will be able to line up on the streets camping out and then line the red carpet is still TBD. It’s a new venue with new rules and security. When Summit knows the info is 100% certain you’ll get it. No one wants to say something and have to disappoint people if it changes.

These high end passes do not get you into the afterparty, autographs with actors, photographs with actors, etc.  Basically you are getting just the movie and other film festival perks.

All-in-all pretty cool because up until now, save for a handful of lucky people, no fans have gotten into the premieres of any Twilight movie.

I think that covers the basics for now. When we know more, we’ll let you know.

LA Times: Why Eclipse at the LA Fim Festival Is A Good Idea

The LA Times breaks down exactly what is to be gained by having Eclipse debut at the Los Angeles Film Festival (LAFF).

“The annual event, which announced its lineup on Tuesday, will feature the world-premiere screening of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the long-awaited third installment in the popular vampire franchise. It’s not exactly typical film festival fare, but organizers are hoping it will serve a larger purpose.

“If we program a movie like ‘Twilight’ that draws audiences that might not otherwise attend film festivals, hopefully we’ll expose them to other cinematic experiences that we think are inspiring,” said festival director Rebecca Yeldham.”
The article goes on to talk about how you can get tickets to the festival, which can be quite pricey. On the other hand, given how much money we’ve seen people drop on all kinds of Twilight merchandise, maybe $500-$1,000 isn’t too much to spend for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Now if you can’t afford this but were planning on going to LA to camp out and line the red carpet, but are worried on how this is going to work at this new venue, don’t panic. All the fansite operators asked Summit a series of questions ranging from is camping out allowed, how many tickets are there, to what kind of access will there be to the red carpet. So as soon as we know, you’ll know.
