The Hawaii Theatre was opened on 6th May 1940, and designed by architect Carl Moeller, with Clarence G. Smale acting as consultant architect. The exterior of the Hawaii Theatre was dressed with a tropical mural over the box marquee. Round glass walls proceded onto the sidewalk flanking either side of the front entrance.
Inside, the auditorium was decorated with tropical jungle murals and had a simple Atmospheric style effect on the ceiling to continue the theatre’s theme. All seating was on a single level.
The theatre was later converted into the Salvation Army Tabernacle in the early-1960’s and remains their Hollywood headquarters today.
