COLORADO (www.incnow.tv) - The movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, the scene of the mass shooting where 12 people were killed and more than 70 were hurt is reopening Thursday.

Many family and friends of the victims are not happy. Owners from Cinemark announced in December plans to reopen the theater with a community event, but when victim's families received invitations to a quote, "special evening of remembrance" most were outraged.

Those families are organizing a boycott of the event saying they are shocked by the level of insensitivity shown by the invitation.
