CHICAGO – In high anticipation for the fourth “Twilight” film to hit the big screen, Summit Entertainment is providing more and more ways for fans to join in on the excitement. We recently wrote about the rerelease of the first three movies to theaters before “The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” hits the big screen, but now Summit is bringing the films even closer to fans in the Chicago area.
