  • If you liked Twilight you might enjoy … The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
  • Enter to win! Make sure you fill out a ballot to win great Twilight prizes - books, t-shirts, posters and more! Ballots are available at the front of the auditorium and the prize draw will be held after the film.
