FARGO - Some Fargo residents that planned on seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” on the silver screen may decide not to go.
This potential change of heart is directly linked to a shooting in Aurora, Colorado, which took place minutes into a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
She says the shooting is something that will stay in the back of her mind.
To ensure the theatre can still be a fun and safe environment Marcus Theatres has released a statement regarding the shooting.
“We are saddened by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, this morning. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, the associates at the Century Theater and the Aurora community.
These senseless, random acts of violence, by disturbed individuals, can happen anywhere, but have never occurred in a U.S. movie theatre in its 110-year history. Safety and security of our guests and associates is always a priority concern. We will take appropriate measures to have our security precautions in place today and every day.
All showings of “Dark Knight” and all other motion pictures at all Marcus Theatres will go on as scheduled.”
