After a gunmen opened fire in a Colorado movie theater Friday night, moviegoers in KOTA territory are still hitting the theaters.
Carmike theater staff say more than 1000 people showed up for the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in Rapid City.
In the hours after the shooting, a steady stream of movie-lovers filled the local theaters, much like any other day, according to Carmike staff.
While some patrons expressed the desire for more security at big premiere screenings, most did not believe they had any reason to fear.
"I think its just an isolated incident. Its unfortunate but I don't think we'll see any repeats of that," said moviegoer Michael Laney.
"I don't think people should live in fear, if they want to see the movie they should come and see it," said Kaylee Shot With Arrow.
Local theaters did not return our calls regarding any increased security measures that may be taken. Authorities in Colorado have identified the shooting suspect as 24-year-old James Holmes.
