Some cities and theaters around the country
tightened security on Friday in the wake of a
shooting inside a Colorado movie theatre. Here is a
partial list of the steps taken:
AMC Theatres said it is reinforcing security procedures with its
theater teams. It will not permit guests in costumes that
make others uncomfortable, nor will it allow face-covering masks
or fake weapons, AMC said in a news release.
In Los Angeles, police dispatched officers
to major venues where "The Dark Knight Rises" was playing.
The Dallas Police Department instructed its
patrol officers to provide "extra visibility" at public
Police were posted at more than three dozen
New York City theaters showing "The Dark Knight Rises." The NYPD
said it was not responding to any specific threat; rather, it
was hoping to prevent copycats.
The list goes on an on. Let's hope no
copycat shootings come out of this and things don't come down to TSA
