Lincoln battles Twilight at midnight showing

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – After a couple of previews last week, the new Steven Spielberg historical drama “Lincoln” has opened in theaters across the country.

In the movie, Spielberg transformed Richmond into Washington D.C. circa 1865.

The Friday midnight showings of “Lincoln” were competing with the première of the final installment of the “Twilight” saga.

While “Twilight” drew around 200 viewers at the two theaters CBS 6 staked out, “Lincoln” drew less than 10 at the one theater offering the film at midnight.
