NYPD Will Provide Coverage at NYC Theaters Showing Batman Movie


Police Commissioner Ray Kelly announced this morning that in response to last night’s tragic shooting at a Colorado theater showing the film, the NYPD will be keeping an eye on all area theaters projecting “The Dark Knight Rises.”

As a precaution against and to raise the comfort levels among movie patrons in the wake of the horrendous shooting in Colorado, the New York City Police Department is providing coverage at theaters where the ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is playing in the five boroughs.

It’s playing at the Pavilion, as well as UA Court Street and Cobble Hill Cinemas. If you go this weekend, let us know if you notice any police coverage.

  1. pure insane overreaction. Yeah sure, pull the cops off the street where they can do some good and stick them in the theatre so you can say you ” covered your ass”. Unfortunately, at least someone in NYPD’s upper echelon, has no idea what the hell they are doing. Perfect!
