Opened on November 20, 1998 by Century Theatres. This theatre features stadium seating, digital sound, showing first run attraction with the usual amenities of a megaplex.

The Century Aurora 16 was closed on July 20, 2012, after a mass shooting, which killed 14 during a midnight screening of the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises”.

It was refurbished and renamed Century Aurora from January 17, 2013.

Not only that, but moviegoers are filing a lawsuit against Front Row Joe for security issues at the theater during the shooting.

I recall seeing in a few of the stories ( which unfortunately I can not show work for) that the “Century” name was being removed and it was being re-branded as a Cinemark.

Well I was incorrect.

The name is remaining a “Century” The venue re-opened last night 1/17/13

The governor of Colorado had a great quote, that I personally agree with…

“"We certainly recognize all the different paths that people take to mourn, the different paths that people take to recover from unimaginable, incomprehensible loss,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said at the ceremony. “Some wanted this theater to reopen. Some didn’t. Certainly both answers are correct,” Hickenlooper said.

Now that this cinema has reopened after extensive renovations, can the overview photo be changed to one of the new photos of the renovated cinema?

It was on this coming weekend one year ago that this theater became a disaster area.
