San Jose movie theater could become city landmark

San Jose's Historic Landmarks Commission will meet Jan. 9 to consider nominating the Century 21 theater as a city landmark.

The theater, located at 3161 Olsen Drive, was built in 1964 and considered an example of mid-century, modern architecture. The attached Flames restaurant, which used to be a Bob's Big Boy, will also be considered.

A nomination would kick off the landmark designation process, involving a historian to document the value of the structures, and public hearings.
