Twilight trivia winner enjoys movie

Cordele — Throughout the month of October, the Dispatch ran a Twilight Trivia contest with one lucky winner receiving the “Ultimate Fan Pack” which included 4 free tickets to the midnight premiere of the “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” Thursday night at Spotlight Theaters.

Hollie Hall, who is from Rochelle and currently a freshmen at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College was the winner of the ultimate package. She has been a fan of the pop culture phenomenon known as “Twilight” based on the novels by Stephanie Meyer since reading the first book.

Ten questions were featured in each Thursday’s edition of the Cordele Dispatch in October and on our facebook page. Each week the questions came from one of the movies/books.

A drawing was held each Friday for a weekly winner who received  a Twilight prize. Those entrants who correctly answered all questions all four weeks had their names put in the drawing for the Twilight Ultimate Fan Pack.

Two of the tickets in that pack were donated by Spotlight Theaters, and other prizes included a collector’s edition DVD’s for “Twilight,” “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” and “Breaking Dawn Part 1,” the “Breaking Dawn Part 1” soundtrack, a “Breaking Dawn” photo frame featuring Edward and Bella’s wedding portrait, “Breaking Dawn Part 2” poster featuring Edward, an Edward and Bella t-shirt, sphere puzzle from the movie “Eclipse,” a pack of “New Moon” trading cards, the illustrated movie companion books for “Twilight” and “Eclipse” and the director’s notebook for the movie “Twilight.”

Hall invited her mother and two friends to accompany her to the premiere.

“It was epic,” she said as she exited the theater just after 2 a.m. Friday morning. “It is kind of sad to know that it is over now. This was the final movie, but it was still great. I definitely give it two thurmbs up.”

Other patrons were equally excited by the film’s release and flocked to the theater which almost sold out both showings that night at 10 p.m. and 12:15 a.m.

Winners of the Cordele Dispatch’s weekly drawings were Jo Middleton Lucas who received an Illustrated movie companion book for “Twilight,” Sami Mastrario who also received an Illustrated movie companion book for “Twilight,” Nikki Brewer who received an Illustrated movie companion book for “Eclipse,” and Wesley Helms who won a movie cover copy of Stephanie Meyer’s book “Breaking Dawn” with a fold out poster.
