Will C. Holden, KDVR, Reporting
AURORA, Colorado — 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, that theater’s owners are asking the public if the business should re-open.
It was the Century 16 cinema in Aurora that was attacked on July 20. Cinemark, the owner of that theater posted this question on the website SurveyMonkey.com late yesterday.
“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.
