Cinemark Movie Theater Death

There's a lot of ways to go - but this has to be one of the worst.

A man died in the bathroom of the Cinemark 16 in Fort Collins Colorado and was not found until 5 days when the movie theater smelled a stench on Saturday that led them to discover the deceased man.

There's a lot to be said here, and while this certainly seems to have enough comedy for a late night TV sketch. But not only is that unnecessary for the seriousness of the situation and the family.

I think the secondary story is that Cinemark really dropped the ball. 5 days is a long time for a bathroom (even a personal family bathroom) not to be checked and cleaned.

This story is shocking - last movie theater death I wrote about was a suicide during Watchmen in Oregon in 2009. I don't know what it is, but a movie theater seems like an awful place to day under any circumstances. I don't know if it's because it's a place of entertainment, it's a "last expected place to die," or because it seems like an unimportant place.

The the family of George DeGrazio, my heart goes out to you. To the management of Cinemark in Fort Collins, how disappointing.
