The twin-screen Burlington Plaza 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.

In 1975, the theatre’s name was changed to the Century Plaza 1 & 2. At the end of May, the theatre appears to have divided screen 2 creating a third auditorium with 100 seats and becoming Century Plaza Cinemas 1, 2, and 3.

Facing new competition, the operation was repositioned as an art cinema in 1991. In 1994, the theatre became part of the Hoyt’s Circuit and given its shortened name of Century Plaza 3. Hoyts closed 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.
