Attorney Don Karpel told TMZ the suit will allege that the Century 16 theater, which is owned by[B] Cinemark, was negligent for not having the exit door guarded or equipped with an alarm that would sound when it opened.[/B] (Holmes reportedly left the theater via the exit door, propped it open, and re-entered with his weapons.) The suit also targets Warner Brothers, blaming their movie's violence for inspiring Holmes. Also named in the suit: suspect James Holmes' doctors, if they exist, for hypothetically not monitoring his hypothetical mental condition adequately.

Invitees - An invitee is a person who is invited onto property for business reasons, and would include customers of a retail store and job applicants. Property owners owe the highest degree of care to invitees to make sure they are safe from dangers on their property. Under this standard, a property owner not only has a duty to repair and correct known dangers, he also has a duty to reasonably inspect for, discover, and correct unknown hazards in those areas of the premises to which an invitee might have access.
Property Owners' Legal Duty to Prevent Injury
I don't agree with bringing a lawsuit against the theater. No one is guaranteed protection from all evils everywhere they choose to go. For all I know, the theater company would just argue that the "no guns" sign was their security policy, and that short of having metal detectors and armed security officials doing strip searches of every patron, there wasn't much more they could have done to ensure the safety of those who chose to patronize their establishment.
Boycotts, contacting your representatives, and informing the public of the dangers of going places that prohibit law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves and others are probably the best ways to get this changed. Business owners have rights, too.

Very interesting, and worth follow-ups when available
I have no doubt that there will be victims and their surviving famiy members that will be suing the theatre in the weeks to come,for not having emergency exits alarmed that allowed the shooter to exit and reenter without being noticed until it was too late.There is a Tinsel town theatre in Mission Tx I went to once and I did not see a TX 30.06 sign banning concealed firearms,my buddy and I both were packing
