Century Theatre 21

I took these pictures in 2017. Above is the Century 21 and it was part of three Century Theatres in Santa Clara - the Century 21, 22 and 23. In the 90s and early 2000’s, I saw so many movies at these theaters.

The 21 was one giant screen and one of the last places to see 70mm movies. I remember seeing Apollo 13 (1995), Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace (1999) and Face/Off (1997) there.

The 22 was a multi-screen theater. I remember seeing The Hunt for Red October (1990), The Last Action Hero (1993) and Species (1995) there.

The 23 was, for the longest time, one giant screen just like the 21. Eventually they split the one large screen with a wall and made it two screens. I remember seeing Rising Sun (1993) and Selena (1997) there.

Sadly, these theaters were demolished in 2019.
