Your Weekend: Bella and Edward are back in theaters for the 'Twilight' 10th anniversary

A decade later, and the romantic tension is still palpable

SALT LAKE CITY — This weekend has it all: the NBA’s hottest young shooting guard, a gender-bending Tim Curry and a blood-sucking romance for the ages. We can’t think of another thing you could possibly need.

OK, we’ve actually got two additional weekend activities to keep those autumn vibes flowing this weekend. Read on.

‘Twilight’ 10th anniversary

Ready to feel old? It’s been a decade since Bella and Edward first graced the big screen — but, you know, they haven’t aged a day. “Twilight,” the hit movie based on the book of the same name, returns to select local theaters on Sunday for some 10th anniversary screenings. Attendees will even receive a commemorative poster. “Twilight” is rated PG-13 for “some violence and a scene of sensuality.” Oct. 21, 23; 2 and 7 p.m., prices and locations vary (fathomevents.com).
