Last day of operation was September 2, 1996, with a double bill of “Solo” and “Carpool.” An article in the previous day’s Honolulu Advertiser said that this house was built on the site of Hawaii’s first drive-in theatre, imaginatively named The Drive-In Theatre and opened in 1950.

I remember seeing Stop Making Sense as well as Nightmare on Elm Street here when I lived on Oahu circa 1984-1987. And eating at Chicken Alice, after or before. Great memories!

I remember waiting in line for the premier of “Star Wars” here at the Kapiolani Theatre and across the street was another old memory of “Holiday Mart”.

The last movie I saw at the Kapi'olani was “Breakin'” in 1984. They still had placards outside in front of the box office, and throughout the lobby.
