After the shooting of the Batman premier, will you go to the theaters. I mean not only is it safer, it costs less, sometimes they're even free. Or do you know that this was a man that was sick and it's not going to start happening all over. Or maybe go to the theater but wait a few days as opposed to going to the premier?

i just not sure how that guy can sneak in and bring his gas mask..and a rifle unseen by the doorman..or cinema workers..? does he have extra access to go in the cinema free without tickets? a former janitor perhaps../?

From reading the reports, it seems he snuck in through an individual theater's emergency exit. The gas mask might have gone unsuspected as it was a midnight showing and there were people there dressed up in costume, but the rifle shouldn't have.

My teenage sons were planning to see Batman today. I told them about the shooting; and apparently it did not stop them from going... I read about it in the news and the details of what went on inside that theater did scare me though.

I just seen this it does make me kind of scared to go to the movies but, i will probably still go. Unless it starts happening other places.

I will still go to the movies, yes. I think the last time I went to the movies on an opening night was for the second Star Wars trilogy releases. It is a different atmosphere on opening night and it can be fun. I honestly don't think this will happen "all over" and will probably stay more isolated but you never know. Regardless, I'm not going to live in fear of the possibility.

i seldom go to movie theaters anyways because it just costs too much to go. for a movie ticket, its like $15- to get in for one person (seriously, who wants to go alone?) then add the cost of snacks on top of it?! crazy high. i get free movies from the library which is almost as good (may not be up to date totally but free is good!) anyways, i am in Canada and if i could afford to go, i still would go see a movie if it was one i really wanted to see.

I've been to three midnight screenings myself. Those three times were lots of fun, and it was amazing to be out with all the superfans dressed up in costume. While this tragic incident shocks and saddens me, I am hoping that going to the movies will stay safe and fun. As far as I know, this is the most disastrous thing that has ever happened at a midnight movie screening out of the hundreds of thousands of screenings that have gone without incident. I'm not planning on going to see anything for a few months, and the next midnight screening I'm planning on going to is Breaking Dawn Part II in November. Hopefully by then all the copy-cat criminals will be done.

I think people might be afraid for awhile. Those poor people.who were just watching a movie and they were ambushed. Seems like we make more and more concessions to our violent culture.
