EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. - 12 killed and nearly 60 others are wounded, after police sat a gunman opened fire in a Colorado movie theater during a midnight showing of the Dark Night Rises on Friday.
Moviegoer Mary Layman says, "Now it's like you have to question everywhere you go. It's sad, it's really, really sad."
Layman says she is baffled by not just what happened, but where it happened.
"You know, just to come and watch a movie and have people die like that? It's absolutely horrible."
Yet, Layman and other movie goers are still walking into the theater in East Greenbush.
Craig and Vicky Don of Castleton, talked with NEWS10 in the parking lot and they just finished taking their grandchildren to a showing.
"We can't live in fear," says Vicky Don. "We just have to go on, our hearts go out to these families, I can't imagine what they're going through, but life goes on and we're going to spend as much time with the grandchildren, enjoying every moment."
The Dons and others tell NEWS10 the shooting will make them more cautious, but it will not stop them from living.
"We don't want to have to hide from it," says Craig Don. "We just want to protect them. "But we're not going to deny ourselves spending time with the grandkids."
"You just have to keep moving along, you cannot let all of these horrible things that are happening in our country right now, keep you living from day to day," adds Nancy McKeon of Kinderhook.
While the owner of the Colorado theater is Cinemark Holdings, Regal Cinemas, which owns many of the theaters in the Capital Region, sent News 10 a statement, saying, "Moviegoers should expect stricter controls over character attire and accessories at our theatres. Details regarding our security measures are not discussed publicly for obvious reasons."
