A Message From Bob Gazzale, President and CEO of the American Film Institute

AFI CEO Bob Gazzale issued the following statement in response to last night’s tragic events in Aurora, Colorado.

"Movie theaters are magical places.  They bring us together to share our nation’s dreams - and even inspire us to stand in line at midnight to be among the first to see a cultural phenomenon.  At AFI - a community of artists and audiences - we mourn our fellow movie lovers and offer our deepest condolences to their families."
