I've gone to this theater lots of times and recently too. Is this just someone trying to copy-cat what happened in Colorado? This kind of stuff is really going to hurt the industry, especially if more copy-cats continue making threats that ALL have to be taken seriously since 911. Americans love going out to the movies. This form of terrorism is quite effective because it's certainly making me think twice about going to the Carmike (or any other theater) for two hours of fantasy. This could lead to the death of the movie theater and movies going directly to pay-per-view in the safety of your own home.
