For more than 64 years, Century Theatres has been bringing the highest quality of entertainment to American movie audiences. In 1941, founder Raymond J. Syufy opened his first indoor movie theater in Vallejo, Calif. Combining first-run films with first-rate business skills, Syufy expanded throughout northern California. He then went on to lay the foundation of one of the country's largest and most successful regional theater circuits. Today, the second generation is in charge. Brothers Raymond W. Syufy and Joseph Syufy continue to champion the values their father instilled throughout the enterprise while building, maintaining and exceeding the standards in state-of-the-art movie theaters. Century Theatres continues to pursue an aggressive expansion campaign. The company owns and operates over 1,000 screens in 12 states including California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Iowa, Oregon, Illinois, Texas, Alaska, and South Dakota. The company is headquartered in San Rafael, Calif.
