‘Captain America’ Screening Benefits Aurora Theater Shooting Victims
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A portion of ticket sales from a screening of “Captain America” Monday night is going directly to the nonprofit group “Aurora Rise,” which supports victims and survivors of the theater shootings.
Aurora Rise is a group that was founded by a family member of one of the victims. It offers financial support to those affected by the tragedy.
The “Captain America” screening was hosted by The Movie Tavern in Aurora.
