Twilight, the first film in Summit’s blockbuster franchise, will play on Tuesday Nov. 1, followed a week later on Nov. 8 by The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on Nov. 15.

Fathom, a unit of National CineMedia, also will present never-before-seen footage and new cast interviews as a part of the Tuesday screening series.
Summit has often screening previous films in the franchise before a new Twilight film opens.
