Aurora victims hold remembrance at movie theater

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado movie theater where a gunman killed 12 people and injured 70 others is reopening tonight with a private event for victims and officials.

Cinemark is reopening the Aurora theater where James Holmes is accused of staging the massacre on July 20. Victims and officials were invited to a brief ceremony to reopen the cinema.

Victims and their families also were invited to visit the remodeled theater earlier this week.

Aurora's mayor, Steve Hogan, says a community survey showed overwhelming support for reopening the theater.

Some victims say it's important to reclaim the theater as part of the healing process. Others refused the invitation to attend.
