The Century 16 opened on 1 October 1998 with a "Canned Film Festival" benefiting the Utah Food Bank. "Patrons were admitted to the inaugural screening by donating a non-perishable food item." The 57,700 square-foot theater complex was built by Layton Construction and has 16 THX-certified theaters, all with stadium seating and digital sound. The largest auditoriums seat 400 and the smallest 180. The old, domed Century theaters and the Prudential Federal Savings building were demolished to make room for the theater. The site has 8.41 acres.
