A brutal shooting massacre at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater has local moviegoers on edge.
"I was definitely a little more concerned. I've been planning on going to see Batman later this evening. But I was definitely more concerned about going to see it," said Joshua Schultz, a moviegoer at Penn Cinema in Lititz.
A heavily-armed guman opened fire on a crowd at a showing of"The Dark Knight Rises"in Aurora, Colorado early Friday morning. Witnesses said the alleged gunman, James Holmes, wore a gas mask and randomly shot as he walked up the theater's steps.
"I mean we would have a concern about it on any day. You know, because it's just so heartbreaking, a tragedy. Security is always the very first thing we're involved with," said Penn Ketchum, a managing partner at Penn Cinema in Lititz.
Ketchum said they're not taking extra precautions after the shooting because they already have them in place.
"Aside from the regular police involvement in terms of watching and monitoring and having a close relationship with our managers, we have a large bags policy and a video surveillance policy. Anybody walking in with a large bag would have their bag checked," Ketchum said.
Despite the tragedy, Ketchum said large crowds are still heading to the theater for the movie.
"The turnout has been through the roof. As Americans, we're really not the type to let one tragedy ruin a good thing for the rest of the country. So I think that's the spirit," he said.
