SACRAMENTO, CA - What's typically a place where families go to escape reality may be changed forever. The safety and security of movie theaters has come under question in light of the movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado.
In Sacramento, loyal Batman movie buffs lined up for early morning showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" at the Esquire theater in downtown Sacramento. Some movie-goers heard of the Colorado tragedy through social media.
"We were watching the Twitter feeds before the movie and it was so surreal,"said one woman.
At the Arden Fair Mall, outside it was business as usual , but inside the United Artists theater, parents picking up show tickets had questions about security.
"You never know. You wanna keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings," said Jerome Pate.
"You wanna see it, but I hope there's good security," said Jada Grove.
