In the wake of Friday’s mass-shooting at the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo., the NYPD will be at theatres screening the film in New York City this weekend. 

A measure for increased security, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said this is a, “precaution against copycats, and [will help] raise the comfort levels among movie patrons.

“In the wake of the horrendous shooting in Colorado, the New York City Police Department is providing coverage at theaters where the ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is playing in the five boroughs,” said Kelly, in a statement.

A masked gunman, identified as James Holmes, 24, shot into the crowd at the front of the Colorado theatre around 12:30 a.m. MT, killing 12, and injuring at least 50 others. 

Out of respect for the victims, Warner Bros., the studio behind the Batman sequel, has cancelled the film’s Paris premiere, scheduled to take place on Friday night.

The Wrap reports that star Anne Hathaway and Director Christopher Nolan were expected to attend the red carpet event.
