Movie theaters banning costumes and face masks from "Joker"

The much awaited Warner Bros. "Joker" movie will be released in theaters Thursday night amid some controversy.
Theaters across the country are banning movie-goers from bringing any sort of costume, face makeup or toy weapons to the movie, according to Fox News.
Grand 22 Theatres in Bismarck is taking extra precautions as well releasing a statement on their their website saying: "For the safety of all patrons: No backpacks, No costumes, No face paint or masks will be admitted."
This comes as a result of the 2012 mass shooting at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colorado.
Families of Aurora shooting victims are asking Warner Bros. to take a stand against gun violence and donate money from "Joker" to charities.
