The Aurora, Co., movie theater where 12 people were killed by a lone gunman during a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” opened its doors on Thursday.
The reopening included a private ceremony to pay tribute to the victims on the July 20th tragedy.
Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper attended the ceremony.
“Many still suffer or grieve and we will continue to support all of them in whatever way we can for as long as they need it,” Hogan said. “But as I think about everyone here tonight, I see resilience, I see strength, I see heroes, I see healing and I see hope.”
Cinemark, the theater’s owner, spent more than $1 million renovating the theater, which now includes an X-D digital auditorium.
The theater was renamed “Century Aurora.”
