On a crisp, fall day in mid-May, a few dozen people gathered on a street corner in New York’s Lower East Side.
They were waiting for the next episode of The Twilight Zone, which they’d watched at the library or at home.
There was a big, white poster hanging above the entrance to the theater where the show was playing, in this case a 1950s-era photo of the character Twilight Sparkle and her friend Rainbow Dash, a girl in a pink dress.
The show’s opening theme was “Tomorrow Never Knows,” which was just the right theme song to end the decade.
“I don’t remember that day very well,” said Jennifer Tett, who was a 14-year-old at the time.
She had just returned from a summer at her parents’ house, where they’d seen The Twilight World.

She says she watched it over and over again.
And now she’s 70 years old, and her favorite movies are the original Twilight, and the remake.
“The Twilight movies were the first great adventure movies, so it was a privilege to have a chance to watch them and be able to watch The Twilight Saga,” Tett said.
“Because it was one of my favorite movies.”
But she still had some problems with the original movie.
“In the movie I didn’t know how to pronounce the name ‘Tide,’ so I had to ask my mom to go look up ‘Tides,’ and it was like, ‘No, no, no,’ ” she said, adding that she was worried that she wouldn’t get the right pronunciation.
“She said, ‘I don
