Century pins more screen sites

Alaska, Colorado, others in plans for exhib expansion

San Francisco-based Century Theatres has announced its latest round of cinema construction, which will extend the exhib into Alaska, Colorado, Illinois and Oregon.

The flagship of the expansion is the Century 12 in downtown San Rafael, Calif. The theater will be Marin County’s first to offer stadium seating and all three digital sound formats.

The circuit also has Century 16 theaters planned to open in Anchorage, Alaska, Portland, Ore., and Aurora, Colo., by the end of 1998.

In 1999, Century makes its first aggressive push into the Midwest with two theaters planned for the Chicago market. Century 16 multiplexes will open at Grand Pier and Riverview, both heavily developed retail and entertainment centers in the city.

The theater chain has also already broken ground or is near construction on more than 204 additional screens in Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas and Utah. The Century 12 in Odessa, Texas, opens this month.

Century aims to increase the exhib’s screen count to “1,000 by the year 2000.” This round will bring the chain up to 846 screens.
