Lovely local theatre for seeing a film you might have missed on the Mainland or the see a favorite again. Great screen comfortable environment ...especially if you get there early and can be seated in one of the rattan armchairs.

My husband and I caught a mid-week early show of "World War Z" will staying in town for a few nights. It was an old theater, but I didn't notice any problems with projector or sound. They had a double billing posted for the week-end of other recent-release summer block-busters.

Movies not as new as on the mainland but still fun seeing a flick and experiencing the atmosphere if you have a rainy night out..

Going to this theater is like going back in time to when you where a kid. You would think that you would see this place in a movie, instead of seeing a movie in this place. It only has one screen and only has about 5 showings for the whole week, but is also used for many community events. It... More

When I visited Kauai, it never stopped raining. The Waimea Theater provided a dry distraction from the rain, and was quite a pleasureable experience due to its older style. So if it is raining, and you are looking for something to do, check out the theater. Oh, and there's a great pizza place right across the street.

This Theater is a MUST SEE inclusion to your visit on Kauai! Just make sure you arrive early - 45 minutes before the show, to secure one of the sixteen extra-comfortable rattan loge seats, available on a first- come, first-serve basis... Another extra is observing all the local community members catching up with each other, before the movie starts.. it's... More

Hey movie fans! You don't have to miss out on first run movies, if you're staying on the quiet west side of Kauai. Thank goodness someone had the brains to save the old Waimea Theatre, located in the heart of little Waimea. It's what I call first rate. Lots of locals, enjoying their favorite movie treats. Get there early and... More

The movie selections are varied and interesting. We went two nights in a row! The theater is very comfortable and the people working there are super friendly!

I really enjoy going to see the movies at the Waimea theater. I feel very comfortable and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. If you haven't tried the popcorn - you're missing out on a special treat - real butter! I'm disappointed to see that the number of showings have decreased. I hope this is only temporary. I would like to see... More
