The Century Plaza opened in July 1985 with “Back To The Future” as one of the first films. With eight screens, it was the first modern multiplex in the area. Unlike modern multiplexes, four of it’s screens were large dome style theaters. In 1996 two more screens were added bringing the total to ten.

In the early-2000’s, as newer more modern megaplexes with 20 or more screens began showing up, the Century Plaza began to fade from the limelight as interest shifted to the newer theaters. The Cenury Plaza showed it’s last movie on April 17, 2008 as on April 18 the new Cinemark Century 20 opened two blocks away.

If this complex was built by the Syufy brothers Century chain, then the architect was certainly Vincent G. Raney, who designed all the theatres built by Century from 1964 into the early 1990s.

I recall seeing a news story on Channel 7 about 3 years ago about a rat infestation at this theater & it caused patrons to flee during movie showings.

I seen “Back To The Future” here when it first opened..How Ironic that this muliplex caused the demise of the multi screen Tanforan theater and some 20 years later a multi screen theater in Tanforan causes the demise of the Century 10.

Except the 20-plex is a Century Theatre. Not exactly ironic.

Looks like it was turned into a bowling alley.

Way cool. I bet a bowling alley under the domes will be pretty fun.

I miss this place so much I would come here all the time as a kid. I made a lot of great memories here. All the movies I watched here this place was just magic to me. Now it just sits there deserted like the magic stopped. I always make a stop here and walk around the building admiring it. I miss it dearly. I wish they would of never closed. I wonder what’s inside I hope they never take this old theatre down I consider this history and hope it opens up again :)
