Details from the Knoxville Charity Screening of 'New Moon'

From Tennessee Journalist:

Imagine thousands of screaming girls and boys yelling your name. That is exactly what happened on Tuesday night when "New Moon" stars Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart rolled up to the Regal Cinemas Pinnacle in Turkey Creek for Knoxville's own red carpet premiere.

Variety, the host for the premiere, is a children's philanthropic organization which has raised more than $1.5 million globally. Each year, Variety chapters host special events such as radiothons, black tie dinners and golf outings.
In past years, the East Tennessee Variety chapter has hosted three movie premieres including "The Dukes of Hazzard", "Good Luck Chuck" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth".

However, this year's "New Moon" premiere has been the most successful. According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Variety raised over $440,000 in ticket sales.

Due to a delay, Stewart and Lautner arrived nearly an hour after their scheduled appearance, but as soon as they exited their cars they graciously signed autographs and took photos before being ushered into the packed theater.

Following the press photos and signings, Variety held a small ceremony awarding Stewart and Taylor with an honorary plaque to commemorate their involvement with Variety's charity.
These awards will be featured in the Pinnacle's own walk of fame alongside other stars such as Jessica Simpson, Dane Cook and Brendan Fraser, who visited the theater in previous years.
"I'm really excited for you guys to see the movie. We put a lot of hard work into it, and I really think you're going to enjoy it," Lautner told fans. "This is definitely an honor, so thank you so much to all of you."
