Since this story was published, Cinemark has announced that the theater will reopen, perhaps around January 1, 2013, with changes made to its interior layout and perhaps to its exterior as well.

These news stories are all like a month behind….

Well, not quite that far behind; that story about the survey ran in the Huff Post on 9/21 which is not all that old; I think the announcement that Cinemark would reopen the theater started appearing a day or so later.

I am sure that many people submit news items every week (I send in quite a few myself) and I am sure that the number varies from week to week. Over the last several months, there has been a great deal of movie theater related news; there have been an increased number of openings, of closings, (principally due to the number of theaters that cannot make the costly transition to digital), of theaters going up for sale, of theaters celebrating anniversaries, and of announcements of films and festivals, etc.

Then too, it seems that the general operating procedure regarding blog postings is that only two new ones are posted each weekday (with occasional exceptions). If there are many submissions, the queue can back up a bit, I imagine.

It’s good that most of the residents of Aurora, CO want the Century 16 Theatre reopened. This shows that people can and often are resilient enough to bounce back after a harrowing situation and resume a normal life, despite being traumatized by such a horrific occurrence. Although I don’t reside in the area, I wish the people of Aurora all the best of luck when their cherished movie theatre re-opens after the first of the New Year.

The Aurora community is one of the most vocal among us in support of the Century 16, and there are many reasons for that. One is that the project has been a long time in the making, and it’s not just a matter of getting the right people on board.
