Cleveland Cinemas says it will "take precautions" in the wake of the tragic and horrifying shooting at a Colorado movie theater that has claimed the lives of at least 12 people and injured some 50 others.
A gunman opened fire during the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in a suburban Denver theater, and police have arrested the suspect, James Holmes, a 24-year-old graduate student at the University of Colorado, according to the Huffington Post.
Cleveland Cinemas released this statement today:
Cleveland Cinemas wants to extend its sympathies to the victims in the incident at the Century Theatre in Colorado and to their families. Our thoughts are with them as they begin the difficult healing process.
The safety and security of our patrons is important to us. Given the recent incident in Colorado we are taking precautions to help address our patron's safety concerns.
A spokesperson from the theater company said they could not divulge details about the "precautions" because of security reasons.
