  • Volunteers Needed Hawaii Theater Center * Fundraiser




The Hawaii Theatre is the host of the Hawaii Premier of the Andy Irons: Kissed by God. Andy was a beloved local boy who achieved international fame as a surfer.

This movie is incredibly timely, as it provides insight into the struggles of both opioid addiction and mental health challenges the three-time world champion battled. As a community, we have a tremendous opportunity to learn from the struggles our local hero faced, and do something to help those in need - many of whom we either know personally, or see on the streets daily in Honolulu.

To celebrate Andy's life, Hawaii Theatre is having a street festival from 4-7pm with food and drink prior to the movie, as well as educational tables and live entertainment in Sun Yat Sen Park featuring Jeff Rasmussen and Donavan Frankenreiter. Proceeds from the street festival will benefit the Hawaii Theatre and the soon to be formed Andy Irons Foundation.

We are looking for volunteers to help us make this a successful event. Hawaii Theatre Center will provide parking, a meal, keepsake lanyard and the opportunity to be part of such an amazing event!

Welcome to the Hawaii Theatre!
View Hawaii Theatre Event Calendar
Proclaimed as the "Pride of the Pacific," the beautiful Hawaii Theatre, built by the Consolidated Amusement Company, opened its doors September 6, 1922 in downtown Honolulu. The Hawaii Theatre operated as a showplace for vaudeville, plays, musicals and silent films until it fell into disrepair and the land lease was abandoned by Consolidated in 1984.

In 1986, the Hawaii Theatre Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation was formed to save the Hawaii Theatre from the wrecking ball and in May 1996, the Hawaii Theatre reopened its doors as a 1400-seat, multi-purpose, state-of-the art performance center.

The Hawaii Theatre was recognized as the 'Outstanding Historic Theatre in America' in 2005 by the League of Historic American Theatres and, in 2006, was awarded an Honor Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places, the Hawaii Theatre is available for all of Hawaii to enjoy.


Administrative Offices: Monday through Friday; 9AM - 5PM.
Box Office: Tuesday through Saturday; 9AM - 5PM.
