Harris Theatres Hits 100

The Harris Theatres are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. Founded in 1919, a partnership between Mr. Bowen, who built the Burley Theatre, and the Harris family, grew into a profitable business. Eventually the Harris family took over ownership of the business. We are now into our 5th generation of family members. The company operated many theatres in Idaho, Utah, Oregon and Nevada. Over the years small town theatres became less profitable and were forced to close.

Today, Harris Theatres operates the Century Stadium 5 and the Burley Theatre. The Burley Theatre operates as a sub-run $2.00 theatre. The Century 5 offers: first run movies in a state of the art, all digital, all stadium seating complex. The Century also offers a VIP, all recliner, auditorium. The Century has just completed a major overhaul of our lobby and concession area. The lobby has been expanded to offer a large waiting area and the concession has been doubled in size to provide faster service to our customers.

Come to the Century 5 to enjoy a movie and check out the changes.
