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

Knowing that this is one of only two theaters on the island, you would think that they would create a welcoming and enticing atmosphere. We received anything but that. First off while parked in the parking lot waiting for our movie, a man came outside...More
