Inscription.  Over 900 people attended a champagne gala to celebrate the opening of the first theatre in the young city of Pleasant Hill. The first movie shown that night of February 21, 1967 was "Dr. Zhivago". Originally built for Century Theatres, the star-topped, futuristic dome building was designed by Vincent G. Raney for Syufy Enterprises. Later operating as the CineArts Theatre, "the Dome" provided many years of movie enjoyment and memories until its final showing on April 21, 2013.
