CineArts 5 at Pleasant Hill

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built in 1966 with a giant curved screen, this Dimension-150 theater has since been expanded to a five screen multiplex.

Although the original domed auditorium is still intact, the screen has been changed to a standard flat replacement. The CineArts showed primarily art house films and is one of a dwindling number of domed movie houses in the country. It was closed on April 21, 2013 and was demolished at the beginning of May 2013.

Good sized crowd for its final show last night. Time to mark this one as closed, and time to add the Century 16 across the freeway to CT.

Now that the Dome is closed let the legal fight to save It go on. Someone needs to check to see who SYWEST is. I beleive Its the same company that is ownded by the owners of what was Syufy Theatres. When the father died many years ago Ray Syufy the two brothers got the theatres. A few years ago they sold most of them to Cinemark. They did keep most of the old Drive Inns under the WESTWIND name. The Syufy brothers are only into cash for the land that the old theatres they still run and own are on. They are trying to make money off the land that the Century 21 Dome is on in Pleasant Hill CA. Out of respect for their dad they need to fix up the Dome, put back the huge Dimension-150 curved screen or call it EX and keep this Dome theatre a center piece of any new stores in the area. Tear down the junky other 4 theatres behind the Dome and build the stores but please keep the Dome for a new generation to enjoy.

This was never a Cinerama ie. three strip theater. It was built as a Dimension-150 theater.

I remember the Century dome theatre at the Cross Road Shopping Center,(Monument and Buskirk)it was gigantic in side and a huge screen. Back in 1975 I watched ‘Jaws’ there with my brother for the first time and in ‘79’ saw ‘Apocalypse Now’ then afterwards going to Leatherby’s creamery to get a Banana Split with my girlfriend. The shopping center had a bunch of stores to like Montgomery Wards and Thirfty’s. Will never be the same not seeing the art house dome anymore while driving to work.

Now there’s a Dick’s Sporting Goods in its place. It makes it look just like every other off-highway shopping center.
