The death of a man at a screening of the latest instalment of the Twilight films is being described by police as unexplained.

The 23-year-old was found slumped forward in his chair, but with no obvious injuries, after a screening on Sunday night of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at Reading Cinemas in Wellington’s Courtenay Place.

Paramedics were called, but he could not be resuscitated.

The man, described by police as a “transient” New Zealander who lives in Wellington but travels throughout the country, appeared to have gone alone to the 6pm screening.

He was discovered by cinema staff about 8.20pm when the rest of the patrons had left, Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Miller said.

A post-mortem examination this afternoon may shed more light on what caused his death.

“There are no obvious injuries to this person. And we are looking at this as an unexplained death,” Mr Miller said.
