I miss the creepy music Century Theatres used to play before the movies. Now they have their digital pre-show thing going. However, when the digital pre-show ends it seems to cut over to the creepy Century Radio music right before the projector is started. Also I've heard it come on after the movie when the projector is shut off. So it seems it's still being played.
Anybody know how I can get a copy of the music?

Also, I'd give my left nut for a copy of the Jazz/New Age style intermission music from General Cinemas from about 1996-1997!

Century's implementing a digital pre-show? Well, crap.

Century 20 West Des Moines still has their deliciously creepy background music to the slides. It has to just be a CD, right?

If they're getting rid of that, I want one too. And Century's "Spotlight" trailer on DVD. And Cinemark's old "Front Row Joe" and "Best Seat in Town" trailers on DVD. And...Aw crap.

The spotlight/seachlight trailer is viewable on their website in the 'Century Experience' section. [Smile]

so does this mean they've ditched their "no commercials" policy? this year i went to a century for the first time, but i came in during the trailers (a precautionary measure) so i don't know how the "show" started.

Still no "TV" commercials per se. For now.
