The company that owns and operates the Colorado theater where a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 others says it will reopen the venue.

A letter The Associated Press obtained Friday from Cinemark President and CEO Tim Warner to the city says the theater will be re-configured and ready to reopen by the beginning of 2013.

Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan asked Cinemark in a letter to refurbish and reopen the theater based on requests from victims and victim's advocates. Hogan asked that special provisions be made for a victim and survivor visitation, memorials, and a change to the outside appearance of the building.

Details of the changes were not immediately available.
