wow, so i just read the oddest story on my local news site. apparently early yesterday (monday) morning (12AM) a 24 year old man killed himself in a movie theater while watching the movie Watchmen. There were at least 10 other people in the theater at the time he allegedly shot himself.
My first thought after reading this was, how did he get a gun into the theater? and then i quickly flash backed to the 100's of times that i have snuck food and drinks into the theater...its easy. there is no one standing there checking you to make sure you have something illegal under your clothes. its scary. i go to the movies a lot, about once a week and i'm just thinking that he could have been deranged enough to take out innocent people with him...i mean he could have literally shot all 10 or at least a few of those people before turning the gun on himself. the movie theater is a place where i take refuge and dive into another world, i can express my emotions and feel whats going on in front of me...now i have to worry about people who may want to harm others bringing weapons into the theater?
please post your thoughts on this.
its sad that he felt that he had nothing else to live for...i mean he was still so young but who knows what kind of secrets he was holding inside. like they say secrets can kill.
do you think that public venues need to do security checks now? how will this affect your movie going experience?
