The Kilauea Theatre opened in 1924 seating 322. The Kilauea is located at the Kilauea Military Camp at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It was built as part of the rest and relaxation for the Army officers. The installation is still an active installation. The theatre is still used for community meetings, plays and on occasion for movies.
This theatre like many others built in the islands in the early 20' thru 30’s was built of all wood and matched the decor of all island structures. Usually had a wooden lanai along the front of the theatre and built up off the ground on something like stilts. Those that are still in operation today that were built in this era still have no air conditioning and simply cooled by fans in the ceilings or along the side walls.
