As a former manager of the Kailua Theater, let me clarify the issue about the number of screens at the theater. During my management term (the late 1990s), I researched the history of the theater. It started as a single-screen neighborhood theater, and later, a long wall was constructed down the center of the auditorium. The wall extended from the back of the auditorium to the foot of the state. This is when the theater became a two-screen theater. It never had four screens. It opened, if memory serves me correctly, in December of 1971 or 1972.
What wonderful comments about the Astor Theatre. You folks know your New York Broadway theaters. I am hoping that you experts can answer my question. Where is the CT listing for the first Helen Hayes Theatre? I have looked under the different theater names (the Fulton, the Folies-Bergere), but have found no listing. Please advise me as to the Helen Hayes Theatre listing? Thank you for your assistance.
