According to retrodome: Century 21, 22 and 23 – There is no new information about the status of the redevelopment of the property at Winchester and Stevens Creek. As of now, we just know the land owner is accepting proposals and that programming at the theatre will continue as planned into the new year. The Land Owner has not made themselves available to explore any options. The owners of the theatres (Syufy Enterprises) have graciously offered the opportunity for us to continue screening movies at Century 21 (more on that below) until the conclusion of their lease.
According to Retrodome:
Programming at Century 24 on Winchester (not one of the original trio) will cease at the end of 2013 to make way for a new, top of the line venue built by Syufy Enterprises and operated by Cinemark (the operator of Cinearts at Santana Row).
I did see 2001 shown in 35 mm, hopefully the domes will stick around a while.
The retrodome guggenheim group is showing “2001” on Nov 22-23 at Century 21. They are still hopeful to perserve part of this complex and locate there.
Retrodome/Guggenheim is now in Century 21 complex
Does this theater have digital projectors? If not, they will probably close down at year end when the digital media takes over.
Good News! Honda’s Project Drive In promotion is upgrading the projectors by the end of 2013. Thanks for the votes and thank you Honda!

The Syufys have installed digital projectors so the Solano drive in will stay open following the full transition to digital media in Dec 2013. Honda is holding a contest to save other drive ins across the country. www.projectdrivein.com
The Syufys installed digital projectors a while back so the drive in will remain open following the transition to all digital media in Dec 2013.
Now closed after a successful run. Awaiting the bulldozer.
Does syufy/sywest still own the land?
Used to run Filipino movies daily
still an empty parking lot, any one remember the capitol square theaters on capitol and McKee? first walk in theater on the east side during the 70s. I remember one time someone working there to someone to quit smoking in the because they would burn the place down
I hope when this theater shuts down it will show 2001 and plays that trailer we used to clap along with.
Ray Harryhousen passed away recently, was the producer of Clash of the Titans (1982). Century 21 sign was defaced so that the letters spelled clash of the T*s, as happened around the country.
this theater is closed and is now a Big Lots store.
