Aurora seeks comments on massacre site's future

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - The Denver suburb of Aurora is asking residents what should be done with the movie theater where 12 people were shot to death last month and 58 others were wounded.

The city's Facebook page directs residents to an online survey (click here to see the survey). Responses are not visible on the survey website, but suggestions from Facebook users range from tearing the Century 16 theater down and replacing it with a memorial to reopening the theater, perhaps with a new name.

A spokesman for Cinemark Holdings, which owns the theater, didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press. The theater hasn't reopened since the July 20 shootings.

Former Ph.D. student James Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held without bail.
