Starring local KHON Fox News Anchor Joe Moore and his buddy, Pat Sajak, star and host from "Wheels of Fortune". Come on down and witness a dramatic comedy of two friends performing on stage. Two old men that meets in a park, who are totally the opposite, one a former barber and the other a retired American sea captain where... More

Worth a visit either to tour or attend an event. It is a beautifully restored historic theater with wonderful acoustics.

A cute theater, maybe in the 1970's but this place has worn out its appeal for the new century. Unless you are a drama fan, don't bother stopping by.

We saw Bill Maher on New Years Eve. Great crowd, great show! The theater is old style with beautiful lobby and stage. Seats were comfortable and we had a great view from our balcony seats.

What a fun way to say goodbye to 2012! We came all the way from San Juan Puerto Rico to see this show and were not disappointed! The theatre is beautifully restored, great acoustics, and the stage is clearly visible from all seats on main floor. The mezzanine looked nice too. We sat in the second to last row on... More

Hubby and I try to catch our favorite guitarist Joe Bonamassa in concert whenever we can. To our delight Joe was appearing at the Hawaii Theatre during our Hawaii vacation, so we ordered our tix and looked forward to the evening. The theater is in Oahu's Chinatown district, and has been lovingly restored to its' earlier glory, reminding us of... More

This theatre reminded me of some of the old theatres in San Francisco, small and quaint and very personal. We were lucky enough to see Jack Johnson here.

Been to HI Thtre many times for music concerts. Its a great old facility that has been renovated and offers great acoustics, intimacy and a funky location in Chinatown. Good restaraunts nearby though parking is sometimes challenging. Small enough that you feel clsoe to the performer and it enables the promoters to bring in a broad range of artists. A... More
