Twilight at Majestic
October 24 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm$5 – $7
It’s vampire/werewolf season again and the Madison-based Say It Out Loud podcast is warmly inviting devotees (and challenging non-believers) to come out on to enjoy the sillier side of the cult 2008 film Twilight. If you’ve had a pulse on the internet over the past few months, you may have already seen that we are neck deep in a Twilight Renaissance, including memes, Zoom parties and Midnight Sun, a 2020 companion to the 2005 Twilight novel, told from Edward Cullen’s perspective.
Whether you’re curious about what all the Twilight hype is about (“Bella, where the hell have you been, loca?”), or looking to revisit the same thrill that you had going to the midnight premiere of Twilight as a youth, Say It Out Loud hosts Jennalee Emmert and Alyssa Allemand are ready to assist you with their fang-sharp humor and a Twilight-themed drinking game (which will be available to take home after the event to play with friends over and over again). Although actual vampires are not explicitly invited to the screening (Rosalie and Carlisle Cullen can come), attendees are encouraged to dress up for the event.
Feeling inspired to revisit young adult yearnings with a critical mind and a fully formed frontal lobe? Want to satisfy “nostalgia cravings” before this event? Listen back to episodes of the Say It Out Podcast (like episode three, a two-parter featuring a licensed marriage and family therapist who talks about Edward and Bella’s horrifyingly toxic relationship) on iHeart Radio, Spotify, Apple or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can follow along with the pod on Twitter.
Shows, screenings, and other cultural events around town, selected and previewed by Tone Madison’s writers and editors. Plus, info on upcoming Tone Madison-hosted events.
