Last call at the Varsity
HONOLULU, HI — Here’s a report from the final day at the Varsity Twin.
After 68 years, the Varsity Twin Cinema closed its doors for good yesterday, drawing a modest Sunday audience of theater regulars and foreign-film buffs.
Nu'uanu resident Clifton Hew, who attended a noontime screening of the French comedy “The Valet,” said the Varsity was a “one of a kind” neighborhood theater whose broad aisles and art-house ambience can’t be replaced.
“I’m kind of disappointed to see it go. But I guess we live in the age of multiplexes and it’s more profitable to show several movies on a smaller screen,” said Hew.
