Situated just outside the Waikiki area, this theater was Honolulu’s oldest operating movie house and one of its few remaining single screen palaces.
The Cinerama theater was actually constructed in 1928 and opened as the New Pawaa Theatre on 5th January 1929 with William Haines in “Telling the World”. It was designed with a beautifully Atmospheric Tropical-style interior. The theater was overhauled in 1962 and renamed the Cinerama Theater on its reopening December 11, 1962. In April 1968 “2001, A Space Odyssy” opened here.
Through the 1990’s, the Cinerama continued to be a haven for classic and second run films. However, with profitability hard to come by, the theater was closed in 1999, bringing an end to a grand chapter in Hawaii’s cinematic history.
The former Hawaii Cinerama, the theater that delighted millions, is now an auto parts store.
