Atlanta Movie Theater Shooting: Two Injured, Not Related to 'The Interview'

Two people are injured after a shooting at the Midtown Arts Cinema in Atlanta, Ga. on Tuesday night (December 23), according to WSB-TV.

The shooting was not related to the controversial movie The Interview and instead took place at a screening of the new independent movie Finesse. The screening was attended by the film’s cast and after the movie ended, shots were fired as the audience exited the theater into the concessions area around 10:30pm ET.

One man was shot in the buttocks while a bullet grazed a woman’s leg. They were both taken to a nearby hospital to be treated.

Corey Crum, an actor in the movie being screened, said that people “were laying on the floor crying, and that people left the building running, some losing their shoes.”

The shooter has not yet been arrested.

“We do not have anybody in custody. We’re still gathering information and trying to identify who did this and apprehend them,” Atlanta police officer John Chaffee said.

    why put The Interview in the headline the movie is not even out yet?

    If this had nothing to do with anything, including the movie, why even make a post about it. I don’t get it. I will never understand the love of creating panic all for clicks or ratings or viewers.

    Because people might assume that the shooting is related to said movie and simply reading the headline will dispel that notion

    Because people might assume that the shooting is related to The Interview and this article dispels that notion, thus avoiding panic, not creating it.

    Dang it, that’s sad! I just arrived in the ATL last night. Hopefully, everyone will settle down for the holidays.

    You’d only hear about the shooting through the news and if it had anything to do with the movie, they’d tell you. Making an article to say, well there was a shooting but it had nothing to do with anything is just sensationalist journalism. People are probably on edge already, waiting to see if anything happens and then you get a news story ***SHOOTING AT MOVIE THEATER*** ….but it had nothing to do with The Interview. It’s just done to elicit a response in viewership and ratings. It’s one of the things I dislike about the media, like if it bleeds, it leads.
