Opened on November 20, 1998 by Century Theatres. This theatre features stadium seating, digital sound, showing first run attraction with the usual amenities of a megaplex.

The Century Aurora 16 was closed on July 20, 2012, after a mass shooting, which killed 14 during a midnight screening of the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises”.

It was refurbished and renamed Century Aurora from January 17, 2013. By 2016 it was known as the Century Aurora & XD.
