With news of the movie massacre at a Aurora, Co., one local movie theater wants residents to know that the doors are still open for folks wishing to take a few hours away from the devastating story of the day.
A statement released by UltraStar Cinemas in Temecula promises movie-goers that efforts are currently underway to partner with law enforcement to ensure safety at local theaters. It also urges film fans to leave the costumes and other movie props at home.
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic events that took place last night in Colorado. Our hearts and prayers are with the families of those who lost loved ones, and those who were injured.
The safety of our staff and guests is always a top priority for us, and we strive to maintain a secure and safe environment at all our locations at all times.

In light of the current situation we are asking guests to refrain from coming dressed in character, especially those costumes that would include any type of mask.
