Century 16 Bayfair New Owner Brings Commercials to Movies

Back in August 2006, Texas-based Cinemark bought Century Theatres, the owner of the Century 16 Bayfair movie theater at Bayfair Center.

Century Theatres was unique among most movie theater chains in not showing television-style commercials before the feature movie presentation. Alas, that time is gone. So now when you head to see a movie on the big screen, you get to pay $9.25 to see your movie with some commercials thrown in. It's too bad that Ray and Joe Syufy sold the San Rafael-based Century Theatres to a company that won't honor its tradition of not showing television-style commercials.
