Local movie theaters haven't cancelled any of their showings of 'The Dark Knight Rises' and fans have been going all day.
We never expected to catch up with one in Winchester who lived in Aurora, Colorado. That's the town where that massacre took place.
"When I was growing up it was a lot different in Aurora," said Steve Tygart.
He was born in Aurora and lived there before moving to Winchester.
"I know quite a few people who still live in that area. It's like I'm afraid to go out and take a look at their newspaper and look at the obituaries and see who those 14 people are," said Tygart.
This hits close to home for more than one reason.
His cousin works for the Aurora Police Department and is on the scene with investigators.
"It made me think of him and what he's going through with the investigation," said Tygart.
He knows all too well what Aurora is going through. He says his brother's kids went to Columbine High School.
"I know how that affected them and how that's going to affect the families that are there right now," said Tygart.
He and his three grandsons have been planning to see the movie since they first saw a commericial for it.
After hearing about what happened in his hometown, he told his grandsons and asked if they still wanted to see the movie.
"He just said hey, think about if you want to go or not. And I chose to go," said grandson, William Langford.
They're glad they went, but spent much of the time thinking about those who were killed watching the exact same movie.
"They had much more time on their lives that they lost," said Langford.
"I know it's going to stay with them for a long time, so may they all be blessed by the Lord," said Tygart.
