News About This Theater
- Jun 2, 2014 — New Century reaches 100
The Larkin Theater opened in 1916, but didn’t gain importance in San Francisco until the 1930’s when, together with the Clay Theater, it became a primary venue for foreign films.
By the 1950’s it had become so popular that long runs such as “Diabolique” and “La Dolce Vita” tied up its single screen for weeks and sometimes months at a time.
By the late-1970’s this was all over, it was renamed the Century Theater, and became an adult venue, and as such continues to prosper today as the New Century Theater.
