They left the building and went into the patio area and both made phone calls. Mall security was called, as was the general manager of the theater.
Pictures of both men were caught on security cameras, and all suspicious activity logged is being shared with local, state and federal employees. NATO has also asked theaters to please “remain alert and report any suspicious activity occurring at your theaters” and to law enforcement.
