City of Aurora asks public what should happen to theater where attack happened
Century 16 movie theater in Aurora
AURORA, Colo. — Just over a month after a gunman opened fire during a midnight premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 and wounding 58 in an Aurora movie theater, the city of Aurora is asking the public what should happen to the building.
It was the Century 16 cinema that was attacked on July 20. The folliwng question appeared on the city of Aurora’s website Monday.
“As Aurora moves forward after the tragedy of July 20, it is our hope that the entire community will participate and benefit from the citywide healing process. Many people have asked about the future of Aurora’s Century 16 theater. We want to know your thoughts. Please take a few minutes to tell us your thoughts. These comments will be shared with Cinemark for consideration in their decision making process.”
One uninjured moviegoer has moved to sue the theater for emotional distress suffered in the attack. Two more parties, who have obtained the services of the attorney who helped Casey Anthony get acquitted of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter last summer, are threatening to do the same.
