Reminds me of the bargain theaters on the mainland that show movies that have been out for awhile at a bargain price. The difference is that this is not a bargain theater and it is the only place to see first run movies. Bring cash...More

We live on an island of 65,000 people and I'm totally satisfied with our Kukui Grove Cinema. I go to Honolulu 2-3 times a year and sometimes go to the Ward Cinema,and yes, it is newer with better (stadium) seating, but apparently no big theater...More

Seriously people, get a life if a small theater on a small island doesn't meet your megalopolis standards. This is a family-run cinema in the middle of the friggin' Pacific (2600 miles from the nearest landfall), that has served our island for many years. They're...More

Only theater left on Kauai, sad. Cash only, which you don't find out until you go to pay. An ATM machine is available to use, for an additional fee...aka extra charge. Apparently they save money by having little to no AC. However, they do have...More
