The Century is an urban chic venue in the heart of downtown Modesto!
Imagine yourself walking into a building built back in the early 1900's.....old exposed brick walls, 20 foot ceilings adorned with crystal chandeliers, spectacular hand-scraped wood floors, private posh VIP room, chic restrooms, gorgeous patios embellished with a beautiful brick candle wall.....and that's just the beginning of the Event of The Century!

Hello, thank you so much for your interest in Project Wedding. We regret to inform you that we are postponing Project Wedding until further notice. Our two buildings on 10th Street are in the middle of remodeling projects which is hindering our big plans for Project Wedding. Currently we need to focus on our clients, weddings and events until our remodeling projects are completed. We will be announcing the new Project Wedding date at our Grand Opening once our buildings are complete. Be sure to join our newsletter on our website to stay informed. Again, we appreciate your support! Xoxoxo
The History of The Century Building
In January 1912 the building was built by William R. Mensinger. The three story theatre included a 34 foot wide stage, an Alaskan marbled lobby and seated 900 including the balcony. It opened in August of 1912 and was dedicated on February 6th of 1913 with the production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance” presented by the Modesto Choral Society. Around 10 months later the theatre was gutted by fire. On July 9th of 1914 the theatre was rebuilt and rededicated. In 1934 with the State Theatre doing so well the Modesto Theatre was past its prime and closed down turning into retail shops.

"Lofts and warehouse-style venues are ideal, as their “blank slate” interiors can be transformed into a space that completely reflects your personality."
