The Century Theaters located on Ethan Way were fondly know as the “dome” theaters. They opened in Sacramento, Ca in 1967. Many generations of kids saw their first movie there, others remember standing in line for hours for Star Wars in 1977.
When I started to write this post it didn’t occur to me how much the Century Theaters were part of growing up in Sacramento. I remember having my first kiss there in Jr. High, and in 1990 I had a first date to see Die Hard 2: Die Harder 😉 with my now husband. For many years after we stood in line to see a Star Trek, Batman and other countless movies.
The last movie that I saw there was Star Wars: The Force Awakens last December and the first movie I’ll see there will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16th.
Bye Bye Domes, Hello State-of-theArt
These are domes that Sacramento residents remember seeing their movies at.
All of the domes have been demolished and replaced with a state-of-the-art theater, which opens on December 1, 2016.
Love the artwork in the hallway. It features a hero and their villain on the other side of the wall.
The Cinemark XD entertainment environment features the largest wall-to-wall screen in the theater, custom calibrated and designed sound system, and the brightest visual display. The Cinemark XD auditorium features the latest movie each week in crisp 2D and 3D options.
Cinemark Luxury Loungers are plush, over-sized recliners with cup holders and footrests. All 14 auditoriums feature Luxury Lounger these recliners.
There is also plenty of room in the isle for people to walk past even when the recliners are being used.

Due to the massive amounts of popcorn she didn’t want to leave.

Stroll in a few minutes before your movie without stressing about getting a good seat.

My family and I attended the VIP reception and were in awe at how awesome the theater is.
