Tragedy Won't Keep Oklahomans from Movies
The Colorado shooting has shaken folks all across the U.S.- including right here in Oklahoma, as many people had plans to see "The Dark Knight Rises" this weekend. Fox 25's Kisha Henry spoke with Oklahomans about the tragedy.
"It's just so sad," said one woman. "I truly can't stop thinking about it."
Everyone expressed their condolences for the victims and their families. But, will it stop Oklahomans from checking out the latest flicks in theaters?
"I think it was probably a really isolated incident by a really troubled person," said one man. "I'm going to see it tomorrow and it's not going to change the way I feel about it."
Most movie-goers we spoke with say, the tragedy won't stop them, but it did frighten them.
"It was Batman and it was certainly something my boys would want to see, and it's terrifying," said one mom of three.
Local theaters say they are taking the shooting very seriously. AMC Theatres released this statement: "We are terribly saddened by the random act of violence in Aurora and our thoughts are with the victims and their families. For the safety and security of our guests and associates, we are actively working with local law enforcement in communities throughout the nation and under the circumstances we are reaching out to all of our theatres to review our safety and security procedures. Being a safe place in the community for all our guests is a top priority at AMC and we take that responsibility very seriously."
The Warren Theatre in Moore says it has 150 security cameras throughout the facility and safety has always been a concern in which they've spared no expense. Bill Warren, owner of the theater says, "Our customers are always safe inside the theater and will continue to be."
