Three victims of the Aurora theatre shootings in July are filing two separate lawsuits against Cinemark in Denver's federal court. The lawsuits allege that Cinemark, which owned the Century Aurora 16 movie theatre where the massacre took place and is the nation's third-largest theatre chain, did not provide adequate security measures for the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. Among other factors, the suit lists the theatre's lack of security personnel, door alarms, and parking lot surveillance. Despite ongoing controversy, Cinemark plans to reopen the theatre in 2013 after a remodeling.
