LA World Premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
I have been watching the updates come in practically by the minute on the announcement that Eclipse will have it’s world premiere at the Nokia theatre in LA on June 24th as part of the LA Film Festival.
Larry Richman has just updated twitter with the following information on how to get tickets:-
The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival takes place from June 17-27. One of the things which makes this festival unique is that it’s sponsored by Film Independent, the same organization responsible for the “Oscars” for indies — the Spirit Awards.
As someone whose life revolves around independent films, it’s been truly exciting to attend a festival every year which is run by the same folks who put on the Spirit Awards, as it always has a schedule second-to-none for fans of indies — or simply great cinema. Plus there are always celebrity guests galore as the event is within a stone’s throw of Hollywood.
As I first reported on this blog a month ago, the LAFF has moved from Westwood to downtown Los Angeles. I’ll be reporting live, as always, and have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of this year’s lineup.
Q: How do I get tickets?
A: Passes to attend the Festival are available immediately for Film Independent members, and beginning May 10 for the general public. In addition to screenings and events, Festival passes provide access to a series of networking receptions and entry to the ZonePerfect live.create. lounge, where Festival pass holders can interact with Festival filmmakers and professionals in the film community. General admission tickets to individual films go on sale beginning June 1. Contact the Festival Ticketing Center for passes, tickets and event information by calling 866.FILM.FEST (866.345-6337) or visit LAFilmFest.com. Festival Passes and tickets can also be purchased in person beginning on Monday, June 14 at the Festival Ticketing Center located at L.A. LIVE (800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015).
Q: What about The Twilight Saga: Eclipse?
A: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse premiere IS the official World Premiere. Festival passes are going on sale on May 10th, and the Industry and Fast Pass levels will include tickets to Eclipse in those packages, while supplies last. There were red carpets with those premieres in 2008 and 2009. In fact, those screenings were held at the same locations as the Twilight and New Moon premieres and the same blocks were roped off. But that’s because LAFF was in Westwood before. Now it’s centered downtown. But I think it’s safe to assume there WILL be a red carpet. I WILL be posting more details as I get them.
Here is the official press release, including the list of films as well as all details regarding ticket sale dates and locations:
