Kiionioni Place and Loop are named after the Hawaiian phrase for “moving picture”, in honor of the Wai'alae Drive-In that was there.

The Wai'alae Drive-In, was a popular spot on Oahu. The drive-in was owned by The Royal Chain that also had another Drive-In on the island The Royal Sunset of in Waipahu and a few other theaters like the Marina, Royal, King & Queen. By the mid 80’s The Royal Chain bowed out. The Marina was taken over by Consolidated and went on for a few more years before closing.
