Theater shooting relatives reject movie invitation
CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Relatives of the majority of people killed in a Colorado movie theater are rejecting an invitation to attend its reopening, calling it a "disgusting offer."
The parents, grandparents, cousins and widow of nine of the 12 people killed released a letter Wednesday sent to the theater's owner, Cinemark. The Plano, Texas-based company has been renovating the Aurora theater and plans to re-open it Jan. 17.
The company had no immediate comment.
The families said they were invited to an "evening of remembrance" followed by a movie. They said the company's timing was "awful" in sending the invitations two days after Christmas.
