The theaters are in a large building that has many restaurants and bars close buy. Lots of parking in a covered garage. Seating is good in all the theaters.

“Clean, Free Parking, Good Location”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Century 20 is our go-to movie house. It's smack in the middle of Redwood City's "entertainment district," so there are tons of restaurants nearby for a pre- or post-movie meal.
My husband loves 3-D pics, and we usually fork over a few extra bucks and see movies in the special "XD Theatre," It has upgraded seats, upgraded sound, and is usually not very crowded, so we can enjoy our movie without distraction.
Park in the garage beneath the theater, bring your parking ticket to the theater cashier, and your parking will be free! Can't beat that.

“Wonderful Theater w. Monthly Family Showtimes!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

I love a 'grandiose' theater as a throwback to days of old...
Century 20 offers this with a downstairs lobby and extremely high ceilings and tall ascending staircase to get to the auditoriums!

They offers first-run blockbusters, as well as, a few indies... and a wonderful, huge, snack bar that includes ice cream and coffee... yum!

The prices are high IF you are not taking advantage of matinee pricing or the Monthly Family Showtimes... a cheaper matinee that shows family/children friendly shows in a dimmly lit, less noisy auditorium! :)

Have fun here!

“A distinctive megaplex”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Century 20 is similar to other megaplexes with multiple screens—overpriced food and beverage, variety of features because of the many screens, films last as long as the audience is profitable. What makes this distinctive is that it is still well-maintained (no torn or ripped seats, floors kept clean of food debris, etc.); that it offers to validate parking tags with free parking; that it is conveniently located to a variety of food options whether dining before the film or a snack afterwards; that it is well-patrolled outside by police officers; and it is right in the heart of downtown Redwood City with its recent renaissance in full bloom.
