    I came across this story today and it was just to fun and I had to share. These two were doing their usual video blog along the streets near London going into a restaurant and some shops. They turned the camera at one point in a clothing store and guess who was in their sights. Yes, Robert Pattinson. I think he looked as surprised as they were. They then left the shop and talked about their encounter along the street. I was amazed they could leave without a photo or saying hi.

    I emailed them today and asked about their video blogging. They were nice and replied with telling me a little about themselves.

    This from Hope:

    We are a couple of students, been together for a little over two years and are at university studying. I (Hope) am studying Fashion and Adam studies Graphic Design. We haven’t been vlogging for very long but we love it, we just film what we get up to really. I am in Bournemouth and Adam is in London, which is about 100 miles apart so we only see each other every two weeks and try to do fun things and film it! :)

    Seeing Robert Pattinson was a total surprise but he seemed nice – not that we talked to him! He looked shy and like he just wanted to keep to himself!

    You can follow their fun videos at  youtube.com/AdamXHope. Also instagram and @adamxhope.

    You can spot Rob with his mom and  sister about the 3:20 time.

     

     

    After posting this there was this reply on youtube:

    You two are too cute for words, and I love how you used the footage you recorded of Rob, I am a person who is truly ROBsessed so I wanted to let you know that is his sister  Lizzie not his personal assistant and the other lady was his Mum, so you and Adam got a real treat seeing Rob interacting with family members.    Thanks for the pix!

    I came across this great article on Robert Pattinson and his Twilight years. Its a year old but still worth the time to read. Its amazing to think of the years he had to deal with all the Twilight fans and still be making movies year after year.

    Robert Pattinson’s 12 candid ‘Twilight’ confessions SPECIAL

    By Earl Dittman     Jan 20, 2015 in Entertainment

    To mark the release of ‘The Twilight Saga’ extended blu-ray, we expose a dozen of the most intriguing revelations the actor/heartthrob divulged to us over the years about his contributions to the ‘Twilight’ series and the effect the films had on his life.The moment movie fans across the globe caught their first glimpse of British-born actor Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson’s handsome visage and experienced his quiet, diminutive demeanor in the inaugural Twilight film, they were, collectively, hooked.

    Twilight — the big screen adaptation of the first installment of novelist Stephenie Meyer’s four-novel literary franchise — would become a massive, overnight international box office hit and would transform the one-time Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire ensemble cast member (Cedric Diggory) into a globally worshipped sex symbol and a bonafide Hollywood leading man. Each installment of The Twilight Saga sequel franchise — TwilightNew MoonEclipse and Breaking Dawn – Part 1 & 2 — increased both Pattinson’s celebrity status among mainstream moviegoers and his popularity among the devoted, obsessed and intensely loyal members of the legendary “Twi-Hard” fan following.
    To commemorate the Blu-ray release of The Twilight Saga Extended Editions Triple Feature (Lionsgate) — that includes new extended versions of Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse, which have been re-edited to include deleted scenes and all-new extended versions of the films — I’ve searched through my archives to reveal the 12 most candid confessions the now 28-year-old highly-paid Dior model and actor (who can seen next month in A Map To The Stars) declared to me, during chats between 2008-2012, about his participation in the various Twilight cinematic incarnations.

    ROBERT PATTINSON ON……PORTRAYING EDWARD CULLEN IN THE TWILIGHT FILMS:

    (1) If Robert Pattinson where granted the chance to go back in time – to 2008, to be exact, at the genesis of the Twilight phenomenon – with the knowledge he has attained over the past half-decade, in 2012, he had some sound advice to offer to his younger self to prepare him for the entire Twilight experience (that he’s consequently lived through): “I’d tell him to start drinking vodka instead of beer, and try to get a six-pack as early as possible, because you’ll be a much more successful actor. (laughs) It’s fun to deal with the terror and the huge highs and lows of things. We’re still getting massive surprises, anytime there’s any Twilight-related event or anything. I remember with the third movie, when we went to Munich, the entire Olympic stadium was filled with fans. We walked in there and did nothing. There was supposed to be a Q&A, but me, Kristen (Stewart) and Taylor (Lautner) stood in the middle of the Olympic stadium with 30,000 people just screaming for fifteen minutes. It was absolutely bizarre. There’s no way you can ever compute it.”
    (2) Robert did have a couple of favorite movie vampires – he just could never remember the actor’s names or the title of the film they starred in: “I don’t really know who my favorite one is? But, I do love movie vampires. I always think of the wrong people, though. I’ll be like, ‘Ethan Hawke in Interview with a Vampire,’ and someone will say, ‘He’s not the vampire. In fact, he’s not even in it.’ (laughs) There’s a bunch I like. Actually, though, I really like Wesley Snipes. I think he’s great. He’s in the Blade movies, right? See, I got one.” (laughs)
    (3) In 2012, Pattinson revealed he harbored conflicted feelings about how the series had been labeled by the press and members of the entertainment industry: “After the first Twilight film, people started referring to it as a franchise, but a franchise is a Burger King or a Subway. It’s not, it’s a movie. The people who start to say it’s a franchise are generally the people who are making money off of it. They love it when something becomes a franchise. But, as an actor, I think it’s scary. You really, really feel like you have no control. It’s a huge juggernaut, especially when something becomes part of the cultural landscape, as well. It’s really scary, because you get trapped and you get scared of changing, which is the worst thing that can happen, if you want to be any kind of artist.”

    4) In his own personal life, Robert admitted he never competed with another guy over a woman, in the way Edward fights with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) over Bella (one-time girlfriend Kristen Stewart). But, he has physically fought over a gal before…kinda: “I don’t ever compete over love. I think I’m not good at knowing it. I just kind of leave you alone, and also, I guess, if you are the one with the girl in the first place I guess maybe you’re forced into fighting a little bit. But I’d never be in Jacob’s position because then you just end up being the guy broke up with. Have I ever gotten in a fight with someone over a woman? Yeah, probably. But, I don’t know if it was about love. It was just more about pride”

    (5) Just before the release of New Moon, he confessed he had already begun to feel the pressure of filming back-to-back sequels and becoming a male sex symbol: “Life has been just a blur. (laughs) There are random moments which stand out, but I’ve been working so much this year that it’s almost like living in an alternate reality. The hours on a film set are so long that you’re doing doctor hours, and every doctor that I’ve ever spoken to says the same thing, that you have no idea what’s going on, other than working. You’re away from your family and friends, and all that stuff.”

    (6) Before its release, he was perplexed by people both inside and outside the film industry who wanted to label New Moon a “chick flick”: “It’s weird. I keep getting told by people, ‘Pump up all the stuff about the action, so the guys will go and see it,’ but it’s ridiculous. It’s like saying that guys can’t appreciate romance. I don’t think you can say that about Gone with the Wind. I’ve watchedTitanic, and I didn’t think, ‘Oh, this is a girl’s film.’ (laughs) Especially in New Moon, and actually in the whole series, I’ve never played it thinking, “Oh, I’m in a series of girls’ films and I’m doing something just for girls.” I don’t feel like I’m doing an animated Tiger Beat every week. I like doing romantic scenes. I felt like a lot of the storyline in New Moon is very heartbreaking and true. I didn’t think I was doing something, just for the sake of romance. I thought, in a lot of ways, that it was a really sad story.”

    (7) By the time he starred in Eclipse, Robert revealed he had finally perfected the proper Edward run: “In the first two films, I always ran with a kind of limp/skip. I could run more solidly for this film (Eclipse). I spent a lot of time running on a treadmill – like one of those wheels that mice run around on. I got filmed to improve my form. That was a big thing for me.”

    (8) Edward was considered, by many, to be a flawed and possessive romantic hero. By Eclipse, Pattison said his character has gone through a real emotional transformation: “His flaws in the first two movies, I think, and in the story were just caused by his sort of disconnection from reality. When he finds one thing to hold onto, that’s where his possessiveness comes from. I think that as the series goes on he accepts more and more that he’s a part of the contemporary world. I think all the things that were deemed flaws before start fading away. That’s how I’m trying to play him. I think he’s coming out of his shell a bit in Eclipse. So, hopefully, by the end of Breaking Dawn, he’ll basically be a normal 17-year-old guy, just a little pale.” (laughs)

    (9) Robert said the weirdest thing he ever read about himself was the one about him expecting…a baby!: “Some magazine had on the cover that I was pregnant. I was just like, ‘Wow!’ (laughs) And, it was without a hint of irony or anything. I didn’t really know what to make of that one. I don’t even know if that qualifies as libelous because they can just say, ‘Well, it’s obviously fiction,’ but it’s written in a non-fiction magazine. I saw a couple comments under the article saying, ‘That’s why he always wears jackets. He always wears layers to hide it.’” (laughs)

    (10) He’s had countless strange and wacky fan encounters, over the years, but he always found those with his more mature fans very surreal: “I always find it funny when older people come up to me. There was a woman who came up to me the other day who must have been in her 90’s. It’s very unusual. And, they say exactly the same things as 12-year-old girls. That is kind of bizarre.” (laughs)

    (11) Having portrayed Edward Cullen over the course of five films, at the end of his Twilight run, Pattinson had mixed emotions about bidding his character adieu: “There’s a thing, in general, about doing any kind of series, especially when the characters remain the same, to go back and try to improve whatever you did in the last movie, which never happens. That work ethic is nice. You feel quite strangely secure. It’s the opposite of how you’re supposed to feel doing a movie. It’s supposed to feel totally foreign, every single time. But, going back for another go at it is good, on one hand, but it’s also bad, on another hand. Your ideas dry up sometimes, and you get lazy sometimes because you’re around the same people. That was the good thing about having different directors. You had to stay on your toes. What was the worst thing? Playing the part where you can’t get hurt and you can’t die gives you no framework. There are too many possibilities, if you can’t die. If you’re playing a normal human being, there’s always that.”

    (12) The incredible success of each of the Twilight films bestowed upon Pattinson the rare, and often elusive, ability of being able to pick and choose the film projects that he really wanted to do – from lead roles in Cosmopolis, Bel Ami, Water For Elephants, The Rover to next month’s A Map To The Stars. In Hollywood speak, Pattinson still wields a tremendous amount of A-list clout among his Tinsel Town contemporaries. (Earlier this month, NetWorthQ valued his fortune at $60 million.) However, in 2012, with the Twilight feature films becoming a part of his past, Pattinson openly admitted he wasn’t exactly sure what kind of roles he’d be playing, or what his career woukd look like, in ten or 15 years: “People always ask me if I’m afraid of getting typecast, but you can’t be afraid of that. It’s really not up to me. I’ve been getting other parts that aren’t vampires. I don’t know if people will accept me in them, or whatever, but there’s really nothing to be afraid of. But, in fifteen years, I have no idea? I don’t know how people will remember this series, if at all. It’s crazy how intense people are. The fan base is still five years on, and I don’t know how long it’s going to last. It would be insane if there’s still the same tenacity in 15 years.”

    Came across this great article with Nikki Reed talking about her new solo music. Of course she is stunning at usual.

    girl we heart: nikki reed

    the ‘thirteen’ and ‘twilight’ star finds her solo sound.

    by: kate williams

    January 13 2015

    Long before Nikki Reed first appeared in Twilight as Rosalie Hale, her career started with a jolt when she was barely a teenager. Her debut role had her starring in 2003’s poignant goodkid-gone-astray film Thirteen, a movie she had co-written based partly on her own life, and that depicted sex, drugs, petty crime, cutting, and teenagers (all in the same memorable scenes). It was a parent’s worst nightmare, and caused a media maelstrom with Reed right in the eye.

    “It was a feeding frenzy, and I wasn’t ready. I couldn’t understand what was happening. I didn’t have any media training—I didn’t have anybody but myself,” she says. “I was a very sensitive kid who then had to condition myself to desensitize. Now I feel like my journey is to try to do the opposite, and find that connection with my own sensitivity again.”

    For Reed, a big part of that connection is music, and on the day that we speak, she’s just released her first single, “Fly With You,” on iTunes. Though she previously made music with her ex-husband, American Idol’s Paul McDonald, this is her first solo venture and, she says, “I don’t think I’ve ever done anything this vulnerable and personal.”

    “Fly With You” is make-out music—the song starts with delicate piano and Reed’s sultry vocals before building to an I-wantyou-now dance-pop crescendo—and it’s a departure from everything she’s done in the past. “There was something so beautiful and honest about what Paul and I created, but there’s no denying that it had a very different feel from this,” she says. “It’s just as real and as raw, but I connected with this music in a totally different way. It’s a new chapter for me.”

    Reed is an impassioned person, and as personal as the release of the song was for her, she also took it as an opportunity to promote something other than just herself: She is donating a portion of the proceeds from the song to the Wildlife Waystation, a Los Angeles animal sanctuary.

    This won’t surprise her fans or followers, who are used to Reed touting the Fusion Rise Up Conference, talking about human trafficking, or pleading for someone to adopt a dog (often in extended, fiery captions on her Instagram). “It’s taken me a while to figure out who I feel comfortable being on social media, because for the longest time, it was just a place to promote, promote, promote,” she says. “I wanted to talk about what I felt excited to talk about and maybe that didn’t have anything to do with projects.”

    Now, for someone who never really expected to be in the spotlight, she’s making the most of the glare. “It’s been a journey to figure out what kind of contribution I want to make,” she says, “and what kind of person I want to be on this planet.”

    Thanks to Matt Roloff and his facebook page, Portland Grimm fans found out that they are using his farm as a base camp for filming out in the Washington County area west of Portland, Oregon. Cruze on 105THEBUZZ alerted me that they were at the farm because he is a huge fan of The Roloff family. After talking with him I decided to drive out to the area and see what was happening. I have been to the farm several times over the years for their pumpkin harvest so I knew the way. While driving there I noticed a sign posted A4B, which is the code for GRIMM filming for their locations. The sign was posted pointing down a small dirt road. I drove past it and went on to the Roloff Farm. While I was on the road I noticed right off several white vans driving in and out of the property transporting crew and actors to the locations. I followed one of the white vans and saw that it turned up the hill towards Helvetia Winery and Helvetia Tree Farm. I decided to come back later. I went back to the farm and I parked and walked along the roadway to get some photos of the GRIMM set up. The trucks, trailers and cars were all parked on an area to the back north side of the property. The farm sits on beautiful rolling countryside.

    While walking along the road back to my car a car stopped to ask if I needed help. I told him what I was doing in the area and it turned out he was a fan of GRIMM too. I told him about the other area they were driving to and we decided to check it out some more. I left the farm area and drove to the Helvetia Winery. When I arrived I saw that there were several cars and trucks lining the road. The filming was set up back from the road on the Winery property and they were using the buildings there. There was a cleared area that I was told they had filmed in another night using huge lighting. I stayed for a couple of hours watching what I could. I did not see the actors but we could hear the directors “cut” and “roll” several times. The security people in the road were nice and let us take photos. As it was getting end of the day they started putting away their filming equipment. We were told they would be filming later in the evening at this location. I was told they had also built a shed type of building at another location close by and were doing filming there are well. It looked like they will be filming in this area for a few more days.

    More photos on my flicker page.

    I came across GRIMM filming tonight near SE 6th Avenue and SE Morrison St. They had all their big trucks there along with several blocks with no parking signs. I learned that they had been filming in the area for a week or more. They are using an old building on the corner for indoor filming and also a building next to it for their cast and crew. When I walked along the street I was able to peek into the building on the corner they are filming in and it was just trashed and looked burned out. I did notice a fire engine and ambulance parked there with firemen. I think they were using them for the filming not an emergency. There were also two Portland police cars in the filming. I did get a quick pic of  Hanks police car parked at the curb. When I turned to walk back Russell came walking towards me and turned into one of the buildings. I believe I also saw David G. entering the restaurant I was eating at which happened to be right on the street they were filming on. I actually got to watch some of the filming from inside while I was eating. They had lights, fog and the water truck ran by to water down the street and sidewalks.

    They are filming there again Friday and I hope to return. Here are some pics and video I was able to take. Russell is in the pics on the sidewalk with a gray coat over his clothes walking next to a guy in a tan coat. It was very windy and cold.

    This first filming was with a guy getting out of his car, walking to the sidewalk and calling on his phone.

    We all knew it was only a matter of time and a few more months until Lionsgate would release some more Twilight footage of the movies. They just announced that January 13 is the date they will release a collection that will include the definitive editions of TwilightNew Moon, and Eclipse.  All three films have been re-edited to include deleted scenes, bringing the fans all-new extended versions of the film. Breaking Dawn is not included in the collection which makes fans think it will be out at a later time  with the “super cut” we have all been waiting for.  They will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray. Just when you thought your 5 or more copies was the limit.

    Robert Pattinson and his girlfriend FKA Twigs have been on the road along the west coast for her concerts in various cities. They were spotted in Vancouver BC last Monday for her concert that night. On Tuesday they rolled into Seattle, Washington. Rob was spotted backstage by a fan during her concert that night at a club downtown. He had a couple of security people with him and soon after she finished they both boarded her bus and were off. The next night was a concert in San Francisco which is about a 15 hour drive from Seattle. I am not sure if they were on the bus for that trip or hopped on a plane. If they did bus it then they came through my city of Portland, Oregon in the early morning hours. Had I known I would have been out on the freeway waving as he went by. I think its so great that Rob returned to his NW Twilight cities.

    After her concert in San Francisco CA, they then returned to Los Angeles, CA and she had two concerts there. They were recently photographed in the city at several locations including just hanging out a residential street, Chateau Marmont, eating out at a restaurant and most recently doing some retail shopping. It was noticed that Rob got another haircut along the way and is back to his short hair look. FKA Twigs has several more concert dates across the US which are mostly sold out. It will be fun to see where happy roadie ROB shows up next.

    Great article with Mackenzie Foy. I will always love her from Breaking Dawn.

     

    Springboard: ‘Interstellar’ Teen Breakout Mackenzie Foy Wants to Direct

    By Nigel M Smith | IndiewireNovember 21, 2014 at 11:27AM

    The young “Interstellar” star talks to Indiewire about working with Christopher Nolan and her plans to one day direct.

    Mackenzie Foy has already worked with James Wan (on “The Conjuring”), Bill Condon (on the final two “Twilight” movies) and Christopher Nolan (on “Interstellar,” which is now playing in theaters). Not bad for an actress who turned 14 earlier this month. As anyone — and many have by this point — who’s seen her bracing work opposite Matthew McConaughey in Nolan’s space epic can attest to, Foy is a remarkable talent who can cry believably with the best of them. In “Interstellar,” her biggest project yet, Foy stars as Murph, McConaughey’s fiercely independent onscreen daughter who’s played in her later years by Jessica Chastain. Indiewire spoke with Foy about her involvement in the potential Oscar player, meeting with Chastain to discuss the role and how she also wants to direct at some point in her career.

    Promoting “Interstellar” has been really fun. I got to go to London and I’ve never been to London before. So that was really exciting.

    I was comfortable on the “Interstellar” set. Everybody was really nice.

    I was eight years old when I knew I wanted to be an actress. I slowly started by getting into commercials and then I was an extra on a TV show. And then the movies happened.

    When you find something that you really love to do, you kind of just know instantly that, OK yeah, I want to do this for the rest of my life.

    I want to act for the rest of my life – and I also want to pursue directing. Watching Bill Condon direct “Twilight,” kind of made me think, “OK yeah, I really want to do this now.” This idea that you can make an image in your head and be in full control of how it comes out — I thought that was really cool.

    I’d always wanted to work with Chris [Nolan] and being able to work with him was just amazing. Being able to see him work and just watch him was really cool.

    "Interstellar"
    Warner Bros.“Interstellar”

    I was a little sad during that scene in “Interstellar” where my dad leaves me. But it was interesting to have all those emotions.

    I met with Jessica [Chastain] before making “Interstellar” and we talked about our character to do certain things that will make the character believable as one person, instead of different people. Like for example, Murph would always have a messy bun of hair that she’s put a pencil in. And she talks with her hands.

    It would be really nice to look like Miss Jessica. She’s really pretty.

    “Interstellar” is about following your heart.

    Filming “Interstellar” kind of inspired me to take Astronomy this year, which is really fun. I’m loving it and finally bought a telescope. I’m using it all the time!

    I read only my part. Later on in the filming process [of "Interstellar"] I was allowed to read the entire script, but I told them “no.” I wanted to be surprised. My character didn’t know what was going to happen, so I thought then that I shouldn’t know.

    I want to be successful and I want to do good, but I also want to be myself.

    My friends just see me as Mackenzie. Weird, slightly funny Mackenzie. I’m pretty normal.

    Looks like Robert Pattinson had a fun few days back in LA to attend the GoGo Gala Charity  event and then present at the Hollywood Film Awards. There was much buzz online about new his new haircut, even here in Portland. When it was first seen at the Charity event it was a surprise to many and gotta say I loved it.

    Here’s the first look at the GoGo Gala Charity Event:

  • Bill Condon’s Side Show Enjoyed By “Twi-Hards”

    Bill Condon has his show Side Show currently running on Broadway. I read this article at the NYPOST Page 6  about how some Twilight Fans showed up to see the previews:

    When Bill Condon — director of the two final “Twilight” movies — hosted a sneak preview of his upcoming Broadway revival, “Side Show,” some rabid fans of the vampire franchise tried to crash it.

    Security at the St. James Theatre (where theMichael Keaton movie “Birdman” was filmed) successfully stopped the “Twihards” from entering without proper credentials.

    But when Condon got wind they’d been blocked, he let some in for a peek at his show.

    “The fans got to watch the cast perform the opening number, ‘Come Look at the Freaks,’” a spy reports. Condon then even took a poll to get their thoughts.

    One favorite, we hear, in the show about conjoined twins in a circus, was a character called Dog Boy.

    When the newborns are in Seattle they are rampaging the city and bring more newborn vampires to a area that looks like a parking lot surrounded by buildings. The Volturi also make an appearance here overlooking from a high cement ledge. Victoria and Reily make their plans here for the attack on the Cullens.

    The area they filmed this at is located in New Westminister BC. It is actually right near where they filmed the Paramount Theater with Bella and Jessica for New Moon. The newborn scenes are done down behind the city buildings and underneath a large cement parking structure that rises high above the roadway. It was tricky finding the exact location because some of the buildings have been redone with new outside siding and paint. The filming was done in the darkness so they were able to do close up filming and blur out the backgrounds.

    At first we couldn’t figure out where the volturi were standing. My friend went up on the parking sturcture to this circular area that overlooked the parking below. I wasnt sure this was the right spot because the circular structure had a pretty high cement wall blocking the view to down below. Right adjacent to this circular structure was a narrow bridge that connected the city streets to the parking structure. We felt we were in the right area and took photos.

    It wasn’t until we watched the movie part with the newborns, and Reily looks back up to where the volturis had just departed that we realized it was the spot., It was very distinctive with the three vertical open slots on the building. We figured that they must have filmed the volturi from up above on this other bridge so that you didnt see this cement wall in front of them. Good searching on my friends part that we finally go it figured out.

    I really cant believe I am talking about Joe Biden on my website, but he was in Portland this week and really jammed up the traffice everywhere. I was planning to get back to the GRIMM filmng that night and it was a traffic nightmare all over Portland. He made a stop at ice cream place Salt and Straw in NE Portland on his way to the airport. Proved to be a great photo op as well. Cruze and I talked about it today on 105.1 the Buzz.    Joe Biden>Ice Cream>Salt&Straw>NE Portland>GRIMM

    I caught up to GRIMM today and scouted out their filming location. They have taken in about a 10 block area in NE Portland near where they have filmed before. There are several blocks of no parking signs that were later lined with their huge trucks and equipment. Cables were lining the streets and they were using three different houses within a 2 block area for the filming. I went through this afternoon and took photos of the houses. Tonight I got back for some of the filming that was going to go on for more hours. None of the main cast was present for tonights filming. The filming in this area is slated to go till friday.  The night filming photos are hard to get but they had three of the huge crane lights up at different times tonight so that does help. Yes, there was a creature involved and a screaming woman.

    The historic Orpheum Theater in Vancouver BC, was used for the flashback scene with Edward. They used the inside of the theater along with the balcony walkway and a stairway. I came across this article from the Examiner which was written at the time of the filming.

    Better known as the home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the historic Orpheum Theatre will tomorrow – Monday, March 13, 2011 – purportedly serve as the latest ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ movie location. Lead actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are expected to arrive at the theater around 5:30 a.m., and one can assume the break-of-dawn start is designed to minimize and discourage disruption by fans and curiosity seekers.

    Website fanbolt.com observes the early start makes filmmaking seem less glamorous (we agree) and reports an unnamed source offered, “They will be filming in the lobby and using the balcony areas. The ceilings are very ornate in the lobby and many movies have been filmed in there. They will also be using the hallways because of the beautiful architecture.”

    The Orpheum Theatre was the biggest theater in Canada when it opened in on November 7, 1927, and served Vancouver initially as a venue for live vaudeville performances and later as a movie cinema. In response to public outcry at the then-owners’ plans to gut and turn it into a multiplex in 1974, the City stepped in to purchase the Orpheum and, through a series of renovations, restorations and acoustical upgrades, has made it one of Vancouver’s three civic theatre “jewels.” Check it out in the attached Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre photos slideshow.

    Here are some photos that were taken inside of the theater. Thanks to my Twi friend for some of these as it was hard to get good photos with the lighting.

    In the last movie of the Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn part 2 Bella drives to Charlies house and drops off Renesmee and then she drives into “Seattle” for a meeting. After her meeting she is shown driving back to “Forks” and rethinking everything that she just learned from Mr. Jenks. For the filming they used the Sea-To-Sky Hwy which runs from Vancouver to Whistler and beyond. They used a stretch of it that is accessible at the Porteau Road exit overpass. This is right between Vancouver and Squamish BC. We drove the highway from Vancouver to Pemberton area which is the location of the Denali house. Its a beautiful highway which follows the river and allows you to view all the tall mountaintops.
