First movie theatre to open in this district, which today is in Fremont, CA. At the time it opened, in 1946, it was located in the town of Centerville. The theatre seats 700 and has a balcony and a stage area.
The theatre showed movies until the early-1970’s, then became a discount theatre, then briefly showed porn, then went back to second-run films. It became a Spanish language theatre from 1978 to 1986 and was called Cine Azteca.
In 1986, it became the ABC Center and showed first run films until 1988. In the early-1990’s, it became the Naz Cinema, the first Indian language theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area and was quite successful.
The Naz Cinema operation moved to the Fremont Hub shopping center in 2000 and the Center Theatre was then shuttered.
The Center Theatre briefly housed a church from late-2001 into 2002. The building was sold to a company named CA Cinema, and in Summer of 2007, it was re-opened as the Park Theatre, screening Indian movies. New projection and digital sound equipment have been installed, as well as stadium seating.
In late-2010, it was announced the Park Theatre would become an Afghan cultural center, and broadcast studio.
