Are you still mourning the old Century Domes in Sacramento?   A multiplex is a multiplex is a multiplex?  A theater is a theater.  In Sacramento, there are two and half movie theaters.  The Tower, Esquire IMAX and the Crest.
 Cinema West chain based in Petaluma.  Has attempted to elevate the multiplex, building theaters with larger screens 60, and 70 foot screens in some of its auditoriums and installing Dolby in nearly all of its auditoriums.
The Palladio 16 in Folsom was the chains first theater in the Sacramento area.  Followed by the intimate adult Palladio Lux around the corner. The Lux has a bar and doesn’t allow anyone under 21 in the evening.
A couple a years ago the chain restored The State theater in Downtown Woodland.  The theater built in 1937 closed in 2004.

 Instead of slicing up the large theater, the company restored the theater and added 9                                                                                  auditoriums.                                                                                  Image result for state theater woodland
Auditorium 1, is the old State theater.  The capacity of the old State was 990 Seats. With the new larger recliners the capacity is 351 seats.  Making it one of the largest auditoriums in the area.   Auditoriums 1 has a 60 foot screen and 7.1 Dolby Sound                                                                               System.
Two weeks ago, Cinema West opened its newest theater here in Sacramento.  The  Country Club Cinema in Sacramento near Watt and El Camino.   The theater boasts two Giant Screens.

We will review this theater next month.  But its largest theater is considerably smaller than the State.
If you live in Natomas or Midtown Sac and missing the sheer size of those domes.   It just might be worth the drive to Downtown Woodland to experience a real large theater. Again Auditorium one.   Woodland is experience a revival downtown. There are several food choices.  The State may be the best theater in the Sacramento Region.
The State Theater is located at 322 Main Street in Woodland.
The Country Club Cinema is located at 2405 Butano Drive, in Sacramento

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
