Review: Rave Cinemas & The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I had a ticket to go see Breaking Dawn's first showing but wasn't feeling well and didn't make it. Lucky for me, my husband took me to Rave Cinema today for the 12:30 showing. We arrived a little bit early and were escorted to our seats in the 21+ section which cost us $13.00 per ticket. I don't think I will ever be able to sit in the "regular" section now. I'm spoiled! We had a waiter take our food order and serve us during the previews. The food was great and reasonably priced. The seats were extra comfy and wider than normal theater seats. We had lots of leg room, which was also nice.

My husband and I visited a bookstore one evening and he was helping me find something new to read.  He found the Twilight series and knew that they were right up my alley.  I'm obsessed with vampires and werewolves, so he ended up buying all four books for me.  Yes, my husband is amazing.

In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage, honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black. With more of the romance, passion, intrigue and action that made Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse worldwide blockbusters.

Normally, when I see a movie after reading the book, I leave it feeling let down.  That has not been the case with any of the Twilight movies so far.  It's true that nothing compares to the books but the films are really captivating.  The intriguing plot and talented acting made for a great viewing experience.  I absolutely loved this movie and cannot wait to see the last one!

  1. I tried to talk my husband into taking me to see this movie on a date night, but he had a guy moment and refused to go see it!! Which is funny, because he actually enjoyed the first three movies when I made him watch them with me on dvd. ;) I'm so excited to see this!

  2. Im pretty excited to see this but have a hard time believing its worth $13 a ticket. We dont have those types of theaters in utah, the most expensive is $8.50

  3. I broke my no-going-to-the-stinky-theater rule for this movie, because I was dying to see it.

    I came a little late to the Twilight party and didn't even pay attention until New Moon was on DVD. Then I watched the first 2 films and I was hooked. Hot, romantic monsters...yes, please!

    While I really liked the film, I had a miserable theater-going experience- to sum up- woman with screaming baby, about 30 families with toddlers and a family behind be determined to eat every smelly, loud food they could in a 2 hour period. I was so upset trying to hear the movie over all those yelling kids and this was at an evening show. One woman did try to get something done about the screeching baby, but management didn't do anything and the mother of the baby spent the next hour of the movie verbally abusing the woman who complained.

    Needless to say no matter how much I want to see the last installment of this series, I will definitely wait for the DVD.

  4. April G - My hubby enjoys the Twilight movies too. I think he's been to the theater to see them all with me. He won't go to the midnight showings but he's all for a matinee!

    Jenzen69 - I didn't think it would be worth that much either. We don't go out often, so I didn't mind the price. I guess it just depends on the person:)

    ape2016 - I will never understand why parents think it is OK to take a baby to the movies to see anything other than a kids movie. I've been to see several horror flicks and seen babies less than a year old there. It's ridiculous.

  5. My wife and daughter saw this. I'm not really a fan.
