Local theaters react to Colorado shooting rampage

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- After Friday mornings shooting rampage in Colorado that took the lives of 12 people and injured more, we wanted to know more about the security measures at theaters in our area.

We stopped by the Fairchild Cinemas in Pasco Friday afternoon. People and staff we talked to say the tragedy won't change how they live their lives including something like going to the movies.

Yet, the shooting rampage still made an impact even on people in the movie industry, "I was sick, I was just, I got really emotional at home this morning when I saw on the news what had happened," explains Craig Bisel, manager of Fairchild Cinemas in Pasco.

According to Bisell, the theater won't increase security in light of the Colorado tragedy. They say there's already measure in place including letting people into the building one at a time, checking all large bags, and keeping all side and emergency doors locked from the outside.

The new Batman movie sold out at the Fairchild after it's debut and managers expect it to sell out again Friday night.
