Most of us are aware of the meteoric rise of the Twilight franchise and its central figure, Robert Pattinson. For those born much later than Generation Y (which I was not), his acting debut in the 2010 movie, Water for Elephants, may still be largely unknown. But for those who were there and got swept up in the frenzy, Pattinson’s performance as a troubled young man in search of purpose is iconic and unforgettable.

There are numerous ways to consume the Twilight films and related content now that they are popular, but the most reliable and convenient option is through the platforms and services that TWILIGHT fans know and love. For filmgoers in search of an immersive experience, there are a variety of ways to see Robert Pattinson’s movies in theaters. If you missed out on the initial theatrical run and are looking for a way to catch up, there are several on-demand options available. Theaters have also expanded their hours so that films can be shown anytime during the day, which provides another option for audiences who want to see movies when they want.

In Theaters

While digital distribution is quickly changing how we watch movies, nothing remains the same, and movie theaters are adapting and changing with it. While the big screen has always been considered the ultimate cinematic experience, with perfect picture quality, laser sound, and more, today’s theaters provide fans with more than enough reasons to go.

Theaters generally show the latest films and popular movies in the summer and Christmas seasons, so it’s worth checking out what’s on offer during those times. Summer is a great time to catch some classic films that you may have missed out on or want to see again, and Christmas is always a great time for families and friends to get together and enjoy a memorable movie night.

Theaters around the country are also experiencing a resurgence, with some theaters adding additional screens and expanding their hours. To keep up with the latest news and announcements about theaters, visit their websites or follow them on social media.

On Demand

While many people are aware of DVD and Blu-ray, there are many others who are still hesitant to make the jump to digital distribution. Those who love to watch films on the go may still want to hold on to their physical copy of a movie, especially since it’s becoming increasingly harder to find special edition DVDs. Limited-edition runs and imperfections are also making an impact, especially with animated films. This is the reason behind the growing popularity of Netflix and its expansive catalog of films and shows, many of which can be watched on-demand.

There are several options for on-demand movie watching, including cable TV networks, websites, and mobile devices. Each of these options allows viewers to instantly stream films to watch and listen to whenever they want. While the quality is certainly there, it’s not the same as being at the cinema.


Today, people are accustomed to accessing information online and expect the same from movie theaters. To stay relevant and competitive, theaters are also providing fans with more than enough options with which to choose.

While online options are generally cheaper and more convenient for audiences, the experience cannot compare to being in the theater. The advantage of being in the physical presence of other moviegoers while watching a film is incomparable, and the excitement and energy in the room is something that can’t be replicated online.

Theater owners and movie studios are also taking advantage of the fact that people can now access films online. Some theaters are offering limited-time or discounted rates for online viewers, and some studios are also providing films online for free. People can then choose what to pay or give away based on their convenience.

Mobile Phones

Smart phones are also changing the way we watch films, and movie theater chains are adapting to the times by providing special apps that allow audiences to order food and drinks, check movie times, and more, all from their phones. This makes it easy for fans to find the information they need while at the theater without having to ask someone or look it up on a mobile device.

This convenience was one of the major draws of the smartphone version of Showcase, which launched in the United States in 2012. Showcase allows users to search for films and TV shows by their names or characters, and then download them to their phones for later viewing. This is especially useful for fans of popular film franchises, whose films they may have missed out on and want to see again.

Cinema Goers

People often like to feel that they have an affinity for a place or an event. The same is often said about fans of a film or TV show, and it was certainly the case for me when I attended the premiere of Pattinson’s latest movie, Madmen, last year. It was an incredible experience, and it was great to feel like I belonged there, watching the film with a packed crowd that was there to support Pattinson, as well as the rest of the cast and crew.

Theaters are a great place to connect with other fans of a movie or TV show. You may want to consider becoming a member of a film society, which will provide you with a community of people who share your passion for movies and shows. Going to the movies is already a nostalgic experience for audiences, even those who have never been to a theater before, and connecting with other fans allows them to relive that experience and show their support for their favorite performers.
