Twilight Eclipse Premier at the IMAX

As you can see from the photo, I am a "Twilight" aficionado. It is not only the obvious Vampire connection that enthralls me! My romantic side is drawn to its passionate love triangles, which mirror another of my favorite novels, Wuthering Heights. This summer I had the tremendous opportunity to see Stephanie Meyer's 3rd book, Eclipse, brought to life at an Imax theatre premier! I had my people book tickets a month in advance.
Since the premier started at midnight, and the show was a few hours away from home, I had my people book a hotel room. I prefer to travel well rested!
I also invited my uncle Edward along so I would have someone intelligent to discuss the plot line and cinematography with. Here we are co ordinating outfits for the premier. Uncle Edward is named after "Edward Scissorhands", not "Edward Cullen", which is ironic since he is declawed. (We do not agree with declawing! Poor Edward came to us from the local shelter, allready missing his digits.)
Like any celebrity, I like to arrive at a movie premier in a fancy car! Fortunately, one of our family vehicles is a "Midnight Cherry" '85 Cadillac Fleetwood Hearse, so we did not need to rent a Limousine. What could be more fitting for a Vampire cat to travel to a Vampire movie in?
Want to see inside?
Mom purchased this coffin years ago at a garage sale. It is perfect for holding groceries when we go shopping. It also provides great privacy for my litter box, when we travel!
Here I am climbing on the back seat we had installed. We needed a vehicle that would fit our whole family....aka...my camera crew.
If you want to read more about our Hearse, here is an article about it in the local paper Nice Folks, but Creepy Car!
Edward and I were not the only ones that dressed up! Here is daddy in his "Team Werewolf" getup. Mom drew the tattoo on with a sharpie. It is not real.
In order to ensure the best seating, we had to line up 12 hours ahead. I had my people bring lawn chairs for maximum comfort. We were about 10th in line to enter the theatre.
Here is daddy napping in my lawn chair while I watch for the snack cart.
While we were waiting I had my picture taken with the stars of "Eclipse".
I also made some new fans, Chad and Kia!
...and signed some autographs!
Uncle Edward had his picture taken with "Pussy Galore".
Uh Oh......trouble! That was right about the time ....
...that I was asked to leave the premises on account of my "not being a human!" Management were as unimpressed with my press credentials and registered therapy pet status, as my argument that "Edward" and "Jacob" are not human either.
So Uncle Edward and I were forced to READ about the "Eclipse" premier in the papers like every other commoner.
Like most boys, I prefer to do my reading in the washroom!
My people informed me that the Imax experience showed every bead of sweat on "Jacob's" skin! Upon returning home, Edward and I downloaded and watched "Eclipse" and gave it 5 meows out of 5. We will be first in line to purchase it when the DVD comes out.

Nofur, you have THE BEST adventures! I love your fancy car (and the license plate). Too bad you did not get to attend the actual screening. But it looks like it made some good reading material!

I can't believe they did not let an adventure cat such as yourself attend the premiere. I enjoy the movies and novels myself. And I love the pictures of you with the family car! What a wonderful way to travel indeed!

I have always wondered if you were a registered therapy animal. I work at blockbuster and rest assured you wont get kicked out of there lol we just had to sign papers agreeing to and acknowledging the new therapy pet policy lol
