    The Theater and the Shooting

    Some of you have been putting information together about the theater itself.
    Please discuss here.

    Just A Theory.

    When you purchase a ticket for a specific movie - you do not know which theatre the movie plays until the ticket is handed to you. The reason for the midnight showing was due to the release date of July 20. This being the premiere. So anytime after midnight on Thursday is fairgame - instead of just waiting until Friday opening morning.

    Anyways knowing that you have a ticket for theatre 9 which you just purchased and most likely had no control over as however many theatres are showing Dark Knight - weather it be the 12:00 - the 12:10 - the 12:20 and so on - you would most likely say 1 for Dark Knight. Possibly 12:00 showing and if it is not sold out you are handed a ticket it would say theatre 9.

    Ok now you know where you're gonna be. And you go take your seat. How from sitting in your seat would you know the relation to the front parking lot - where you presumably just parked - to the exit door of theatre 9 to have your car there. The movie complex is huge. No way could you know by looking at your ticket that just says 9 that you could park right outside of it.

    Some witness accounts say JH purchased ticket went directly to 9 and took his seat. Went to exit stage left with phone and motioned to someone.

    The only way it would make sense is if he was showing a driver where the entrance {exit} is. Then JH is not seen again in street clothes. If you listen to the 911 tape the suspect is wearing a plaid shirt. Either a second person is all geared up and enters or JH changes into gear.

    Interesting post! But I think the shootings were in Theater 9.

    I haven't been to the theater in a few years but could JH have arrived early and asked to be seated in Theater 9?

    I'm pretty sure that JH exited, and re-entered, on the right side of the theater.

    I am getting sleepy and trying to go by memory of watching numerous newsclips. The basic idea is the same. Oh I missed a question. How he would know which theatres are sold out and which are not at time of purchase when all showings ended up being sold out is more likely to purchase the usual way ask for one for Dark Knight at certain time. Asking for a ticket for Dark Knight Theatre 9 would just coincide with a certain time. And if that showing was sold out - they would have sold him a ticket for the next showing. Which would have been in a completely different theatre.

    Sounds like they didn't know exactly who the shooter was in that moment or how many there were. Somebody on here posted in the General thread last night a full detailed timeline (from I think Reddit). It seems as if they were also dealing with the mall also.

    Hello

    I am still trying to understand how the bullets also reached Theater 8 .
    I understand that it penetrated the wall per the news but still i am having some doubts...


    Some shots fired in theater 9 penetrated the walls of adjacent auditoriums, hitting at least one person in theater 8 next door.

    Since the tickets were purchased in advance he would know what theater it was playing in (house 9). He probably bought the ticket 2-3 days beforehand and visited the theater to check out house 9 ahead of time. He would probably want to scope out the exits etc...

    Then that night he either parked right outside the back door, or moved his car closer after he stepped out the back.

    The wall between theater 8 and 9 was probably little more than drywall. Rifle bullets would penetrate such a wall easily.

    The interior walls between the theaters would be thin and heavily padded to block sound.

    High caliber bullets would go through them like butter. That is a basic home defense tactic, if you know an intruder is in the house you don't need to see them, shoot them through the walls/interior doors before they see you.

    Good link but I couldn't get it to play correctly (would start but stall). It is interesting to hear the first responders/cops, most sound stressed but calm, some sound like they are freaking out, some victims can be heard wailing. The female dispatcher is awesome, fast, accurate and professional. Here is an 18 min scanner recording that does seem to work:
