Some dates: Century 22 opened in a separate building on November 13th, 1969, which in turn was split up into Century 22 and 23 on March 1st, 1972. The Century 21 building is split up into three cinemas on November 28th, 1975. On September 28th, 1990, an extension was added to the original Century 22 building with four more screens for a total of nine screens.

Here’s a new 4-page 50th anniversary FIDDLER ON THE ROOF retrospective featuring a roadshow playdate chronology and historian Q&A. Century 21’s run* is mentioned in the piece.

*This engagement, when combined with the Century 23 “moveover,” was, I believe, the longest run of FIDDLER in North America.

This was where I saw my 1st R movie, A Clockwork Orange. This also was where I saw Animal House the 1st time. All of my siblings, and their significant others decided to go see it together. It’s a great memory. I believe the movie influenced me in deciding to attend college :)

Going to see a movie, such as “Towering Inferno”, in the summer of 1975, was a treat at the Century 21 and that HUGE curved screen. Then I saw “Tommy” at the 22 and the 23 (being the other side was split for a twin. Finally, the last film I saw at the 23 was “Star Trek I” but unfortunate a very uneventful experience was experienced. This was the beginning of the end for the Century 21 complex.
