"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" set an opening day record at Mahoning Valley Cinema.
Bruce Copio, theater manager, said the movie opened at Midnight on Thursday and was shown on seven screens.
Five of those screens were sold-out, he said.
"We had an all-time record in attendance," said Lou Silverman, theater owner.
He noted, "It was quite an experience for Bruce Copio. He used seven auditoriums."
Silverman said the movie easily passed the previous attendance record set by "Harry Potter."
