The Century Building

In January 1912, the building was built by William R. Mensinger. The three story theatre included a 34 foot wide stage, an Alaskan marbled lobby and seated 900 including the balcony. It opened in August of 1912 and was dedicated on February 6th of 1913 with the production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance” presented by the Modesto Choral Society. Around 10 months later the theatre was gutted by fire. On July 9th of 1914 the theatre was rebuilt and rededicated. In 1934 with the State Theatre doing so well the Modesto Theatre was past its prime and closed down turning into retail shops.
