The lines weren't any shorter in theater lobbies for this summer's blockbuster, and while what happened in Colorado is on everyone's mind, people are keeping the shooting in perspective.
"It was an isolated incident. Devastating – but an isolated incident," one movie goer said.
"You can't live your life expecting that to happen, it can't hold you back," said another.
Still, security is something theaters are looking at.
Not long after the shooting, national theater chains issued statements saying they were going over their security plans and will make adjustments where they are needed.
Kevan Smoliak, General Manager at St. Anthony Main Theater said they aren't doing anything different, but there is a sense of heightened security.
"We do check out exits very frequently to make sure nothing looks fishy there, we check the entrances to the theater to make sure no one is sneaking in that shouldn't be," Smoliak said.
In a post on Facebook, AMC announced it was no longer going to allow people to wear masks or bring fake weapons into its theaters.
Other theaters in the area said no new policies were being put in place, but security was in place.
