AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver suburb of Aurora is asking residents what should be done with the movie theater where 12 people were shot to death last month and 58 others were wounded.

The city's Facebook page directs residents to an online survey. Responses are not visible on the website, but suggestions from Facebook users range from tearing the Century 16 theater down and replacing it with a memorial to reopening the theater, perhaps with a new name.

The survey was reported by KMGH-TV.

A spokeswoman for theater owner Cinemark Holdings declined to comment. The theater hasn't reopened since the July 20 shooting.

Former Ph.D. student James Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held without bail.

    Memo to the Aurora government hacks.The theater is private enterprise. Take a flying leap. The owners can do as the see fit.

    If they must put a memorial on the graves as the family desires. Help them through the murders of their family members. Then convict and put to death this killer, life will be another slap to the face of the Victims, Families and people of Colorado.

    Leave it as a theater. Do not glorify the killer by changing its use.

    Stop giving the murderer the notoriety. It is to bad that he wasn't killed at the crime scene so that we would not have to be subjected to his trial. A memorial plaque for his victims would seem appropriate.
