This happens in 2012. People are in a cinema. The cinema is in Colorado, USA. The people are watching a premiere of a film. It is midnight.

A man comes to the cinema. He has three guns. He starts to shoot them. He kills 12 people. He injures seventy people. The man goes to prison for life.

New photos emerge. They show the cinema. They show it right after the attack.

Difficult words: premiere (when a film shows for the first time), midnight (twelve o'clock at night), injure (to hurt someone or something), emerge (to become public).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
