Nothing says vampire like blood, so celebrate the release of the sure-to-be megahit Twilight -- a teen-angst melodrama about vampires in high school -- by giving up some of your precious bodily fluid for a good cause. The Cinebarre Theater, 10001 Grant Street in Thornton, is sponsoring a blood drive for Childrens Hospital to promote the movie and a good cause at the same time. Its a vampire movie, and we were trying to come up with ideas about blood, so we figured, why not blood donation -- and Childrens Hospital was excited about it, explains Brooke Bieber, manager of Cinebarre. We try to use promotions in a fun, kind of crazy way, but also help out the community. Everybody likes kids, everybody wants to help out sick kids, so it seemed natural.
The blood-draining premiere party starts today at 6 p.m. Register to give blood and youll receive a pair of free Cinebarre passes for use at future screenings and the knowledge you did something nice. The theater, which has a full bar and restaurant attached, will also offer numerous vampire-themed drink and food specials, from a Bloodsucker Bloody Mary bar to garlic pizzas. And if you absolutely cant wait to get your Twilight on, Cinebarre offered a midnight screening last night with a tarot card reader, a coffin you can have your picture taken in and other campy, vampy fun -- but no blood drive. The fun last night started at 10 p.m. For more info, visit www.cinebarre.com or call 303-457-1700.
