Just in time for Christmas weekend, Cinemark’s new Century DoCo and XD movie theater will open tonight, Friday, Dec. 22 at Downtown Commons, the burgeoning entertainment district surrounding the Golden 1 Center. 

Formerly known as Century Downtown Plaza 7, the complex closed January 11, 2016 to make way for construction of the arena and DoCo.

Nearly two years later, moviegoers will be able to step inside a renovated space with two levels of auditoriums and concession stands. The theater will open with seven screens (two more will launch in early 2018) capable of 3-D showings and featuring enhanced audio, including a Cinemark XD large-format auditorium with 228 seats. Century DoCo will also feature oversized recliners and will be the first Cinemark theater in the Sacramento region to offer adjustable heating on each seat.

Jennifer Wood, West Coast marketing manager for Cinemark, says guests can also expect an expanded concession menu as well as a bar with beer and wine selections. On evenings that the Golden 1 Center hosts an event or game, the theater will offer complimentary valet parking.

Century DoCo’s opening weekend will host showings of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Downsizing, Pitch Perfect 3, Father Figures and Ferdinand.

In late 2016, Cinemark opened Century Arden 14 and XD in the Howe 'Bout Arden shopping center on Ethan Way, replacing the demolished domed Century Stadium 14 movieplex, which opened in the 1960s. Next door, Century Arden Movie Bistro, a dine-in theater with seat-side ordering, is expected to open next summer.

1015 4th St. 442-9044.
