Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper bows his head during a prayer at the reopening and remembrance ceremony at the Century Aurora cinema, formerly the Century 16, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013 in Aurora, Colo. The cinema is where 12 people were killed and dozens injured in a shooting rampage last July.

About this Article

One survivor had to pause on his way into the theater and pray. Another braced for flashbacks as he entered the auditorium where 12 people died and dozens were injured during a massacre six months earlier. Others refused to come, viewing the reopening of the multiplex as insensitive. The former Century 16, now renovated and renamed the Century Aurora, opened its doors to victims of the July 20 attack on Thursday night with a somber remembrance ceremony and a special showing of "The Hobbit."
