STER KINEKOR has lost its ur­gent Pre­to­ria High Court ap­pli­ca­tion to screen the new cult movie Twi­light Saga: Eclipse a minute af­ter mid­night on its re­lease world­wide on Wed­nes­day.

Fol­low­ers of this movie, which is ex­pected to be a box of­fice hit, will, how­ever, be able to see it at Ster Kinekor the­atres at nor­mal times.

Paul Bur­ton, of Ster Kinekor, fol­low­ing their court de­feat, said they will now ac­cept the of­fer from ri­val Nu Metro En­ter­tain­ment to screen the movie from 9am and on­wards on June 30.

Bur­ton said movie lovers who had al­ready bought tick­ets for the post-mid­night screen­ings, would be re­funded.

Judge Roger Claassen agreed with Nu Metro’s ar­gu­ment that no con­tract ex­isted. He said no fi­nan­cial agree­ment was signed, which fol­lowed that there was no bind­ing agree­ment in place.

Twi­light Saga: Eclipse is the third of four films based on the suc­cess­ful books of author Stephe­nie Meyer.
