News About This Theater
- Jan 16, 2013 — REMEMBERING CINERAMA (Part 56: Honolulu)
The Princess Theatre opened on November 8, 1922 seating 1,600. It was located on Fort Street just off the Pali Highway. The Princess Theatre ran first run fare until a remodel in 1958. It was re-done to accommodate three-strip Cinerama which ran from 7/22/58 through 5/24/58. It had a curved screen that measured 62 feet by 23 feet. After the three-strip, it reverted back to regular first run films.
In 1962 Cinerama returned to Honolulu, first in the three-strip process then in the 70mm format to the Cinerama Theatre (Pawaa Theatre). The Princess Theatre struggled along until 1968 when it closed and a short time later was demolished.
