The Century 21 and Century 22 buildings in Salt Lake were demolished in 1998, leaving few photos behind to help us remember them. The photos on this page are of the Century 23 building in San Jose California, which was divided into two theaters like the Century 22 building in Salt Lake.

When the Century 23 in San Jose was divided into two auditoriums, cuts were made into the domed roof to accommodate the edge of new screens in cramped quarters.  The Century 22 in Salt Lake had two such extensions made to its domed roof and the Century 21 may have had as many as four. - , Utah

At the Century 23 in San Jose, four exits were cut into the front of the dome, with stairs descending either side of the covered entrance.  No such modifications marred the Salt Lake buidings. - , Utah

The covered entrance of the Century 23 in San Jose is almost identical to the Century buildings in Salt Lake.  The box office was at the right end, with glass windows and entrance doors along the curve of the building. - , Utah
