More theaters open “Eclipse” ticket sales

By Kim Palacios

I initially reported nearly two weeks ago that tickets for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” were beginning to go on sale. At the time, had listed three theaters across the nation offering online sales for the 12AM show. As of today, alone has increased the original number by twenty, and many local theaters have opened sales for the 12AM showing offline.

The best advice for getting tickets as early as possible is to head to your local theater in person. Many theaters have their own practices for selling tickets for shows with sensational openings, (e.g., the “Twilights” and “Harry Potters” of the world). My own local theater, arranges fan-focused events—last November they had a 10:00PM showing of “Twilight” and folks in that theater took an intermission before returning to their seats for “New Moon”. They also sold tickets for a large-screen showing in the IMAX theater. In the cases of both “special” events, tickets were only available for in-person purchase at the box office.

If you prefer to buy online, check both large sites like and Fandango, and check the online web site of your local theater. Currently on, “Eclipse” tickets are on sale in theaters in the following towns across the U.S.: California (Monrovia, Corona, and Vista), Nebraska (Fremont, Nebraska City), Iowa (Sioux City, Orange City, Shenandoah), Kentucky (Glasgow), Tennessee (Kingsport), Virginia (Fredricksburg, Wytheville), West Virginia (South Charleston, Beckley, Summersville, Triadelphia), North Carolina (Morganton, Statesville, Raleigh), South Carolina (Charleston), New York (Brooklyn, New Hartford), New Jersey (Toms River)
