Vampires and werewolves might not have a problem with staying up all night, but students who have to show up to school on Nov. 16 might be a bit groggy.
The movie series, based off Stephenie Meyer's successful books, comes to an end with the debut of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," and Frank Theatres Queensgate Stadium 13 has a big night planned.
It all starts in the afternoon with a five-movie marathon, beginning with "Twilight" at 12:30 p.m. Tickets to see all five movies are $20.
"I'm expecting a pretty good, sizeable crowd," said Kevin Scott, Queensgate Stadium 13 general manager. The final film will start at 10:05 p.m.
Scott said 10 p.m. is the new midnight in the industry. It's a change that came about after the movie theater shootings in Aurora, Col., that left 12 people dead.
For those who want to attend a traditional midnight showing, however, one will be available, but the movie marathon is the main attraction.
There is a mini-marathon that includes just the two parts of "Breaking Dawn," starting with "Part 1" at
With the summer blockbuster season long gone, Queensgate is getting ready for the holiday season.
"Business for the holiday season starts this week," Scott said. The newest James Bond film, "Skyfall," arrives in theaters this week. "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" and Stephen Spielberg's Abraham Lincoln biopic, "Lincoln," follows in wide release, then comes "Life of Pi" and "Rise of the Guardians."
December brings several literary classics to life, including "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "On the Road."
