“True Blood” Hitting Theaters midnight June 1st

Loyal fans of “True Blood” can get a bite before the Season 3 premiere.

HBO will host special midnight events for the vampire series at movie theaters across the country on June 1.

The night includes a screening of the Season 2 finale, an extended sneak preview of Season 3, and a live Q&A session with cast members and creator Alan Ball.

Tickets to the screenings are free, with VIP passes available through a variety of promotions and contests. The show’s official Facebook page gives fans a chance to win passes by “coming out” as a vampire, shapeshifter, werewolf or (ahem) “fangbanger.”

HBO explained the event as a reward to a passionate fan base that turned “True Blood” into a hit last year.

Anna Paquin’s Sookie Stackhouse, Stephen Moyer’s Bill Compton, and the rest of the Bon Temps gang return to television on June 13.
