WAITE PARK - Fans are getting hungry for the "Hunger Games".  The movie will open in theaters nationwide in a week.

Local hunger fans can watch the movie at midnight next Thursday night.  Marcus Theatres Parkwood Cinema General Manager Ben Reiners says they'll be showing the film on several screens.

Reiners says they sold out 17 theatres for the opening of Twilight.

Reiners says it's unusual for a movie to get this much hype at this time of the year.

To reserve your seat, you can call the Marcus Theatres box office, or go to their website.
