One die-hard Twilight fan might learn the hard way that patience is a virtue -- while doing hard time in prison.

A Chicago woman is facing felony charges after she was caught videotaping parts of  "Twilight: New Moon" in the theater, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Samantha Tumpach, 22, was arrested after employees of Movieco Theater in Rosemont saw her pointing a video camera at the screen during a showing of the movie Saturday night, according to the Tribune.  Prosecutors said Tumpach had less than two minutes of the new movie on her video camera, the Tribune reports.

She has been charged with criminal use of a motion picture exhibition facility and faces up to three years in prison if convicted. 

Tumpach was released on personal recognizance bond on Monday, the Tribune reports.
