Fans are patiently waiting for the new “Joker” installment played by Joaquin Phoenix, but, it’s hard to forget the tragedy of 2012.

As a result, “Joker” will not be played at the Cinemark Aurora Theater where a crazed gunman opened fire at the 2012 showing of “Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 innocent people and wounding 70 others.

The Century Aurora and XD is now a remodeled site and bares little resemblance to the site where James Holmes ruined so many lives, but, it will not be home to the new movie.

According to Deadline, the decision comes from Warner Bros. and Cinemark after the Aurora victims’ families wrote a letter to Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff.

The letter, which was written by the families of Jessica Ghawi, Alexander J. Boik, Ashley Moser, and Tina Coon, asks Warner Bros. to “use your massive platform and influence to join us in our fight to build safer communities with fewer guns.”

Some of the demands include ending political contributions to candidates who vote against gun reform, such as the NRA.

Warner Bros. has yet to respond!
