This is a charming little multiplex. We saw Star Wars. The auditorium is interesting in that the aisle is the middle. (Kind a old school) The sound and picture were great. The staff was nice. Wish I was going to be there in Feb 2016 for their Film Festival. Great movies.

We enjoyed seeing a movie on our vacation, and were delighted to find a small audience sharing a large theater, so we had an unobstructed view of the screen.

To be honest, it does not stink as bad as it used to, and some of the seats are better(really doesn't say much), but far from a decent theater. The 3-D military movies I have Seen have been out of focus on the right side of the screen, and the 7.1 surround is kind of a joke. My last trip... More

Went here to watch "Star Wars". We were told the tickets would go on sale at 7:15, the doors didn't open till 7:30 and the movie also started late. Make sure you have cash for the tickets. No one told us this and a sign was not posted. Thank goodness there was a ATM at the theater. Not well organized.

Most importantly Kuhio Grove takes only cash. It is a basic cinema with 4 screens (at least one shows 3D). I thought the chairs were fine but my husband found them uncomfortable. Sound and video quality were fine. The popcorn was just okay plain--it might have been better with butter (they offered).

Every week I look at the Kukui Grove Cinema listings only to find the titles are STILL the same as they were last week. Three weeks in a row with the same movies. Yes, the place is old; yes, the popcorn is not fresh, and even if it were popped right before the theater opened, Kaua`i air will kill it;... More

So the place is dirty and the owners are rude - already knew this. If their equipment breaks down - too bad for you! Today just topped it off. Went to purchase movie passes, the parking lot is pretty empty. I parked IN A STALL! Facing out. When I went in and requested the passes the owner asked if that... More

Every time i go here (because unless you live on the west side, there is NO other option if you want to see a movie) there is some issue to deal with. Cash only? What the?! No presale of tickets... They will not even let you buy a ticket for your spouse if that spouse is outside in the parking... More

Long line in blazing heat. Why did they cut the trees and only shade down so much?! CASH ONLY! What century are these people in? At least the air conditioning worked. But, they are the only cinema on Island. Soooo
