Local theaters take precautions after nationwide warning

HARRISBURG (WSIL) — Local theaters are taking precautions this weekend after the FBI raised concern over the new movie, "Joker".

Harrisburg Mayor John McPeek says he was contacted by Showplace Cinema, who had received a letter from their management warning of the potential of violence at movie theaters nationwide.  

McPeek says he assured the theater that the city would increase police presence at the theater throughout the weekend.

Dan Brugger, General Manager of Showplace Cinemas, says these are only precautions, and that there is no credible threat locally.
