Kewalo Theater

Opened by Consolidated Theatre on November 5, 1937 with Shirley Temple in “Wee Willie Winkie”. The Kewalo Theater served the Kaka'ako neighborhood in Honolulu. It would show second-run fums, along with Japanese and Filipino films.

Uncertain of when it stopped being a movie theater, but in the mid to late-1970’s it was in use as a warehouse for old film reels. One could walk or drive past it, see a door open and be able to look at racks of tin reels inside.

The building is still there, but is now the home of a scuba equipment business.
