Durango theater to remove offensive movie listing

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - The manager of a Durango movie theater says he will remove a marquee listing for a movie titled "Safety Not Guaranteed" after it appeared under a listing for the new Batman movie that was the scene of a mass shooting on July 20.

Russell Allen tells the Durango Herald said it was a coincidence that hadn't crossed his mind when selecting movies to show at the Gaslight Twin Cinema. The marquee provoked strong reactions from people over the last three days.

The low-budget sci-fi comedy called "Safety Not Guaranteed" is running alongside "The Dark Knight Rises." The owners say the two movies will continue to run.

Colorado prosecutors on Monday charged James Holmes with 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder in the shooting rampage.
