Century 16 Movie Theater, Aurora CO
My husband and I saw a movie at Century 16 today. I always figured we'd go back there. It virtually the only movie theater I've been to in the last 20 years.
It was okay. I felt okay, but deliberately did not track which theater the shooting took place in. I can say this, I don't think it was the one we were in today...and for that I'm glad.
People were nice there...everyone. I highly doubt anyone in there does not know the history of the place. Walking in there, made me recognize the privilege of being alive.
I wonder if others feel as lucky as you did?
It really shows how things can turn on a dime in a moments notice and to spend your time loving as large as you can.
I can't imagine what other people might feel...the first time they went back, or the 10th. But I don't think you can walk in this theater and not think of the people who died there...or were hurt or traumatized. And I think it's probably good, overall, to be reminded of this. We're not living in a bubble where bad things can't happen. I would say most the people in that theater know that. O mean, we all had to think about this, and decide cross the threshold of the place.
I unintentionally drove by the high school where the girl was stabbed to death two days ago. Boyfriend graduated from there and lives around the corner. Saw police and vigil and the painted rock memorial. Felt something similar.
