LITTLE ROCK, AR-- The line to see 'Dark Knight Rises' spilled out the door and onto the sidewalk at the Chenal Imax. Yolonda Callahan dropped her daughter off. But after the recent Colorado shooting, she had some worries.

"I am reserved about it. But she will be here with her best friend's grandma. So I am okay with it," said Callahan.

The crime put law enforcement agencies on alert across the country, including right here in Central Arkansas.

"There is no place someone is going to be 100 percent safe," said Lt. Carl Minden.

Minden says the Pulaski Couny Sheriffs Office will staff off duty deputies at the Rave Theater just like any other night. However what happened in Denver reminds authorities to always be prepared.

"It's nothing different than what they should be doing any other night.That's why the deputies are there to give you that safe environment," said Minden.

Movie goers say despite what happened in Colorado, they will not allow the crime to turn them away from the box office.

"There is nothing on the face of the earth that can stop me from seeing this movie tonight," said moviegoer Demarion Farmer.

Blake Mattison says he wanted to treat his girlfriend to a Friday night date and could not allow the mass shooting to stop his plans.
