Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.
Century 21 opened in 1967 with 985 seats and a 80-foot curved screen. It's domed ceiling was 155 feet high. In 1969, a duplicate building, Century 22, was built across the street from the original.
Only a few years after they opened, both building fell victim to the trend of splitting large theaters. Century 21 was split into three screens (Century 21 - 23).
Century 22 also showed 70mm and was equipped for Dolby Stereo. Century 21, 22, and 23 had slightly curved screens, and Century 22 had curtains for it's screen.
In 1998, both the Century 21-23 and what was now the Century 6, were demolished so the space could be used as a parking lot for the new all-THX Century 16 theaters, which were built on an adjacent lot. The old theaters were not in the best shape and one theater in the Century 21 building was closed permanently because of water damage.
