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 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.
