The twin-screen Cinema I & II launched May 22, 1970 with 35mm and 70mm capability by SBC Corp. The first two films were “MASH” and “Goodbye Mr. Chips.” Screen I held 303 patrons and Screen II held 400.

A long, narrow third auditorium was added in the front of the large lobby in 1975.

Facing new competition, the operation was repositioned as an art cinema in 1991. In 1994, the theatre became part of the Hoyt’s Circuit. Hoyts closed the theater at the end of September 1995 with “The Usual Suspects,” “Unzipped” and “The Brothers McMullen”. The three-screen facility was razed in December of 1995 and replaced by a new-build Barnes & Noble bookstore.

The Century Plaza and Burlington Plaza cinemas are two entirely separate businesses. In 1983 the Burlington Free Press shows both cinemas operating at the same time with ads placed right next to each other showing entirely different films.
