Open Road Films has canceled the red carpet premiere of “Marshall” on Monday in the wake of the deadly shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday.

In lieu of a full premiere and red carpet, the biopic starring Chadwick Boseman as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall will be debuted in a private screening for cast and filmmakers and invited guests.

“On this day of national mourning, we have decided to cancel tonight’s scheduled red carpet premiere of ‘Marshall,'” an Open Road spokesperson said in a statement. “Instead, tonight’s event will be a private screening of the film for the cast, filmmakers and invited guests. Our thoughts are with the the victims of the tragedy in Las Vegas, their families and all of those affected.”

The premiere was scheduled to take place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

On Sunday night, a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel at the crowd of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. At least 58 people have died, with more than 500 people injured. The suspect is dead from what police believe to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
