Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Yesterday's post about changes made (or not made) at ten massacre sites was inspired by a survey asking what should be done with the Aurora Century 16, where James Holmes allegedly killed twelve people.

Here are some reader suggestions for the theater's future.

Brittany Kern writes:

Keep it open but turn theater 9 into a memorial and have it a special place of remembrance and let people enjoy Batman clips from all the movies showing all the time in there! The victims were there enjoying one of their favorite super hero. Let that super hero be a part of that theater.

Chuck it an fuck it, take the shit down and MOVE ON.

Why does my opinion matter? The owners should make the decision because they own it. American freedoms are awesome. And whatever they decide -- it's not for us to judge.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
