Aurora Theater Shooting

Aurora shooting: Families of victims blast letter from Cinemark inviting them to reopening

This was not the holiday letter that families of the Aurora theater shooting victims wanted to receive.

Two days after Christmas, the families of those killed on July 20 received a letter inviting them to return to the site of the massacre for a Cinemark reopening event. They've since responded with a letter blasting the invite as a deeply insensitive marketing ploy, saying they will be encouraging a boycott.
