The Century Theater was built as a cinema for African American audiences. It’s listed at both 2300 and 2302 Metropolitan as it took up multiple lots. The $45,000 theater’s architect was W. Scott Dunne of the Melba, Texas, and many others, and owned by Palace Realty. Construction began in 1937. A fire July 9, 1941 closed the theater for a period of time. The theater re-opened in 1952 and closed thereafter.
