Century Stadium 14 Sacramento

This unique theater originally consisted of three dome-shaped theatre buildings. Century 21 opened on September 21, 1967 with Clark Gable in “Gone With the Wind” (presented in 70mm) and Century 22 opened on June 19, 1968 with Richard Harris in “Camelot”. Both were designed by architect Vincent G. Raney. Century 23 opened on August 1, 1973 with Johnny Whitaker in “Tom Sawyer”.

An additional 11-screens have now been added. The setup is somewhat bad. For some movies you have to walk all the way around the outside of the building where the box office is over the other building where more screens are located.

It was closed in late-2015 and demolished in January 2016. The Century Arden 14 and XD was built on the site, opening November 2, 2016 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures)

This theatre has now closed and is in the process of being demolished. A new 14 screen will be constructed on this site. It is projected to open in late 2016.

Destroyed this day, February 1, 2016. Our community’s heart lies broken, but our resolve is strengthened. RIP Vincent G. Raney.

the Replacement theater opened offically yesterday: Century Arden 14 and XD 1590 Ethan Way, Sacramento, CA 95825 just south of the old main building, retangular box with a corner tower, sort of art deco with luxury seating. Only a couple of the old employees are back.

Correction: Century 21 opened on November 21st, 1967 not September 21st, and Century 22 opening in 1969 not 1968 (same date). sorry for the mistake.

Century 23 opened on August 1st, 1973 and Century 24 and 25 opened on October 18th, 1974. The listings changed to Century Complex 5 in 1977 and the 6th screen opened in 1978.

1973 and 1975 grand opening ads posted.
