The Carmike Cinemas family is saddened by the senseless shooting of theatre guests at the Century 16 in Aurora, Colorado. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and the community. Preliminary police reports indicate that the suspect, who is in custody, acted alone and that there is no evidence of any continuing threat.
At Carmike Cinemas our theatre teams are trained in standard security procedures and employ a wide variety of those measures at our complexes across the country. Many of the security procedures are visible and others are not in the sight of our guests. Uniformed law enforcement officers and plainclothes agents are routinely used. We pride ourselves in taking every reasonable measure to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests.
Carmike Cinemas posts a policy in view of guests that informs them of our right to inspect the contents of any backpack, package, or bag prior to admission. Weapons of any type are strictly not allowed in Carmike Cinemas.
