News About This Theater
Located in Aiea, north of Honolulu. Opened on February 1, 1962 with Doris Day in “Lover Come Back” & “The Right Approach”. The single-screen Kam Drive-In was once one of the most popular outdoor theaters in Hawaii. The drive-in was twinned sometime in the 1970’s. It was operated by Consolidated Theatres.
With attendance in sharp decline, the chain cut the drive-in’s operation down from daily to weekends and holidays, starting in 1997. However, this didn’t help, and in late-1998, Consolidated shut the Kam Drive-In down. In 2001, its two massive screens were demolished.
The Kam Swap Meet operated during the daytime at the drive-in from 1966 until it was finally shut down on March 5, 2017. Since 2014, the land parcel has been permitted for a planned mix-use commercial residential development called Live Work Play ‘Aiea, but as of spring 2018, no construction has begun, leaving the area unused since the closure of the swap meet. The site is now a shopping center.
