First-run movies on the ships are ONLY Disney movies, right?

There are no exceptions, right?

I'm just trying to see if there is any possible way I can see the new Twilight movie during the week we're on board. It comes out the day we fly down to Orlando for our 11/22 cruise. I don't want to wait a week until I see it. I'm getting desperate!

Yes, Disney releases only. The only exception was on the Transatlantic sailings when they did show some older (released several months before) non-Disney releases. On the regular 3-, 4- and 7-day sailings, however, they only show Disney company films. You won't be able to see Twilight on board until many months from now when it may be one of the films shown on the stateroom TVs.

Hello Twilight fan! I am soo looking forward to this movie. I'm re-reading the series .... well actually hearing them...as first time I read the books, this time I am doing audiobooks.

Well, if ANYTHING is worth missing this movie for...it would be a Disney Cruise...

Smiles,

Holly

Yes, it's only Disney movies but remember Disney has a huge vault. We were on the 7 night Eastern. We never say the old time anumation classics. We saw Snow Dogs, High School Musical 2 and stuff like that. Something interesting to know is that if a new Disney movie is coming out it will also premier the same day on board the ship.

It's only Disney or disney distrubuted movies that are shown first run. Unfortantly Twilight is being distubuted by Summit and therefore will not be shown. It may be show months down the line on stateroom movie channels.

I am so excited to see Twilight too!!! but it's coming out friday Nov 21st... so is there not someway you can see it before you board on the 22? There is a movie theater close to the port - http://www.movietickets.com/house_de...?house_id=8749
you could see it at 11:30am on the 22? ok I may be stretching this for you. goodluck!

The first run are Disney movies, but on longer cruises that have shown other recent films, I have seen James bond in the Med, and Ironman Indiana Jones and many other films on the special cruises.

I thought I vaguely remembered seeing a Harry Potter movie first-run on one of my past cruises, but I was unsure. I'm pretty much willing to stoop to any lengths to see this before I embark, though!

My flight doesn't leave until a little past 9 on the night of the 21st, so I'm thinking about trying to squeeze in the 4:30 showing at my local theater. It'll be tight, but Twilight is well worth it.

Thanks for all of your prompt responses!

First runs would be from Disney, Buena Vista, Miramax, Hollywood, Pixar (actually not sure if Miramax is still associated with Disney).

Can't wait to see Twilight.....read the first two in the series over a weekend....waiting for the third to come in paperback for my collection!!

We're on the same cruise. Have you posted on the Traveling Turkeys thread?

I'm also a fan of Twilight and was hoping they'd have it on the ship. I just finished New Moon and have Eclipse on hold at the library.
