Witnesses and people injured in the Aurora theater shooting might be allowed to visit the theater where a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
A copy of an email sent Thursday by prosecutors to victims and obtained by The Associated Press shows those interested in visiting the theater have until Friday to contact an attorney for Cinemark Inc. for information.
Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan in a letter sent to Cinemark earlier this month asked the company to refurbish and reopen the Century 16 theater and allow for visitation by survivors and victims' families. Cinemark officials did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Cinemark has advised the city of its plans to have the theater ready for reopening by early next year.
