The movie theater is like going back in time. I love the memories they have provided to the community such as free Movie Night for Christmas Eve. It is small and quaint and as all of Kauai, a break from the fast pace that so...More

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

Although the facility suits its purpose, only 2 of the rooms are considered updated but still not upgraded to those of mainland theaters-better and larger seats. Theses theaters do not have a middle aisle. The other 2 are still older seating and set up with...More

The cinema and four theaters were dated and didn't appear to be so clean. They only took cash but offered an ATM (watch out for the $fee). The popcorn was not expensive although the butter tasted synthetic, the candy was $3.50 for the same boxes...More

Being from California the best surprise was how inexpensive the concessions were. Another added bonus was they showed three Looney toons cartoons before the feature . . . Old school awesome feel. The seats were comfortable and main aisle was wide. The movie was a...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
