The Colorado movie theater that was the scene of a horrifying massacre nearly six months ago had its controversial reopening/remembrance ceremony Thursday.

Cinemark created its own controversy by inviting victims and their families to the event, a move that left many offended.  While some refused to return to the scene of the horrific crime, others thought it could aid in the healing process.
