Family members of those who were killed in the Aurora movie theater shooting sent an angry letter to Cinemark after being invited to "a special evening of remembrance" and a movie in the theater where their loved ones were massacred.from Cinemark Offers Tickets To Reopening Night For Aurora Victims' Families, Prompts Angry Response
Relatives of eight of the victims signed the letter, saying they were especially angry that the invitations to the theater's reopening night were received so soon after the holidays.
During the holiday we didn't think anyone or anything could make our grief worse but you, Cinemark, have managed to do just that by sending us an invitation two days after Christmas inviting us to attend the re-opening of your theater in Aurora where our loved ones were massacred.Thanks for making what is a very difficult holiday season that much more difficult. Timing is everything and yours is awful...
[Aurora Mayor Steve] Hogan was one of several speakers who addressed attendees from a stage in what had been Theater No. 9, just a few feet from the spot where James Holmes is accused of opening fire in the crowded theater during the midnight premier of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
The auditorium has been renamed the Extreme Digital Cinema and now features a floor-to-ceiling wall-to-wall silverscreen, new seats, new carpet and new wall hangings. A Cinemark employee was overheard saying, “Pretty much everything in here is brand new.”
Tables filled with bags of free popcorn and soft drinks, and employees wandering through the crowds offering free candy, lent something of a surreal air to the occasion. The digital marquees over each theater entrance read, simply, “Remembrance.”
Reopening the theater, which is now called Century Aurora, has been controversial. Family members of nine of the 12 killed signed a letter to Cinemark calling the reopening and estimated $1 million makeover a crass publicity stunt. Several victims’ family members boycotted the reopening ceremony. Some preferred that the theater remain closed and that a memorial to the dead and wounded be erected on the site. At least eight lawsuits have been filed against Cinemark, alleging a variety of security shortcomings.

From my perspective, this event was intended as a hint that the massacre was partly intended as a sort of "closing act" in the old theater. I assume that plans had been made before the massacre took place to upgrade the theater (#9, just coincidentally, I'm sure), and that they scheduled the massacre to take place just before the renovation was planned to begin.
Note that the management apparently used the word "remembrance" to broadcast clues to the Satanic nature of the event. For one thing, who but some sadist would want to dredge up memories of that horrible night? It appears to have been partly intended as a means of rubbing salt in the wounds, and the above letter-excerpts indicate that it indeed had such an effect. (It seems to me that a more appropriate approach would be to help people FORGET by making it appear that nothing had happened there, while spending as little as possible on the theatre in anticipation of people avoiding it for quite a while). Instead, the effect will be to induce certain people to remember the slaughter as good thing, because the result from their perspective is a new high-def theater which they and their friends can attend, perhaps with a "special" discount.
For another, if "remembrance" (emblazoned on the marquee by itself, as if to beg for analysis) is converted to numbers (note that the theaters are now designated by letters, instead of numbers, perhaps as a hint of this "code"), the result is 18 5 13 2, 18, 1 14 3 5, i.e. 11 9 23, all of which are "occult" numbers.
