BEWARE of vampires, albeit fake ones, lurking at the Ipswich cinemas tonight.

Fans of hit fantasy movie franchise Twilight will don fangs and flock to Birch Carroll & Coyle for the first screenings of Breaking Dawn Part Two, from midnight.

The flick, which is the last instalment in the Twilight Saga, will run on up to eight cinema screens to accommodate crowds.

Sisters Tammy Behr, of Lowood, and Suellen Telford, of Bellbird Park, are among Ipswich's biggest Twilight fans.

"I read the books first and loved them, and then we moved on to the movies," Ms Telford said.

"It's a great story - the best love story there is.

Ms Behr said it was sad the saga would conclude tonight.

"I guess we'll just keep re-watching the movies, but it is sad to there won't be any more."

Ms Behr said the sisters have a collection of Twilight merchandise, including pillowcases, boxed sets of the books and signed posters.

Event Cinemas spokesman Gareth Sutcliffe said some fans turned up to premieres in glitter make-up and gothic costumes to mimic the movie characters. The film premieres nationally at 12.01am Thursday. Details at eventcinemas.com.au.
