Relatives of 9 killed in Colo. movie theatre reject "disgusting" invitation to reopening
Relatives of the majority of people killed in a Colorado movie theatre are rejecting an invitation to attend its reopening, calling it a ``disgusting offer.''
The parents, grandparents, cousins and widow of nine of the 12 people killed released a letter Wednesday sent to the theatre's owner, Cinemark.
The Plano, Texas-based company has been renovating the Aurora theatre and plans to re-open it Jan. 17.
The company had no immediate comment.
The families said they were invited to an ``evening of remembrance'' followed by a movie.
They said the company's timing was ``awful'' in sending the invitations two days after Christmas
