Activity Finds: Downtown

Hawaii Theatre

Entertaining Hawai‘i for more than 90 years the Hawai‘i Theatre is a Downtown Honolulu icon, its stage playing host to everything from vaudeville acts and silent films to musicals, ballets, concerts and more.

Today this brilliantly restored center sits on the list of Outstanding Historic Theatres in America and its historical edifices and décor make visiting here, just as much an event as what's on stage. And no matter what you're interested in, you'll find something to tickle your fancy -- Hawai‘i Theatre has played host to a variety of talents from David Sedaris and Margaret Cho to hula, taiko drums and wearable art.

An easy stroll along Bethel Street at the edge of O‘ahu's Chinatown, Hawai‘i Theatre is a perfect Friday date spot for a crazy cool night on the (down) town. Grab a martini from Bar 35 or some escargot from Du Vin before catching an evening of Hawai‘i's best entertainment. Tip: Check their website or call the theatre in advance to see what's waiting in the wings.
