AURORA, Colo. -- The Denver suburb of Aurora is asking residents what should be done with the movie theater where 12 people were shot to death last month and 58 others were wounded.

The city's Facebook page directs residents to an online survey. Responses are not visible on the website, but suggestions from Facebook users range from tearing the Century 16 theater down and replacing it with a memorial to reopening the theater, perhaps with a new name.

The survey was reported by KMGH-TV.

A spokesman for theater owner Cinemark Holdings didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press. The theater hasn't reopened since the July 20 shooting.

Former Ph.D. student James Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held without bail.

The city's survey can be found here via Surveymonkey. It asks:

As Aurora moves forward after the tragedy of July 20, it is our hope that the entire community will participate and benefit from the citywide healing process. Many people have asked about the future of Aurora's Century 16 theater. We want to know your thoughts. Please take a few minutes to tell us your thoughts. These comments will be shared with Cinemark for consideration in their decision making process
