Went to this theater in Waikiki a few times, as my grandmother, grandfather, uncles, and aunties lived in the same neighborhood for awhile. An all-you-can-eat restaurant now sits in its place, but the Royal Theater was also known for the banyan tree next to it, leading to what was the parking lot for the theater in the back.

According to a few websites, “the world premiere of “Hawaii Five-O“ (was) shown at the Royal Theater on Oahu” on February 19th, 1968. This would be the pilot episode titled “Cocoon”, which started shooting on November 6, 1967. The reason for the showing was to present it to CBS executives, who chose to pick it up as a series.
