This cinema is so outdated as you can see from the outside of the building.... It is CASH only. The cost is $9 for an adult movie ticket. My boyfriend and I went here early afternoon and didn't have cash, so we had to go to the ATM that was provided inside. We told the elderly women what movie we... 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 to let us know that we could not park in the direction we did. That... More

We decided to take in a movie on our last day on Kauai and this was your typical small format movie theater. The prices are reasonable for both movies and snack bar purchases. The theater and washrooms were clean and the seats were comfortable. Not a bad way to kill some time between checkout and flight departures.

It's $9.00 regular price and $6.00 matinee. Cash only and your entire party needs to be present at time of ticket purchase. The cinema is good enough for an island. Comfortable chairs, good sound system. Of course pop corn and sneaks are available for purchase inside the cinema.

My wife & I went to Kukui Grove Cinema on Wednesday 14 December to see “Hacksaw Ridge.” We were a bit disappointed by the cash only policy, but surprised at the large size of the theater for our movie, #4. We were expecting a few rows of seats but there was well over 30 rows. The sound and projection system... More

I offered to dump out the bag so he could inspect the contents. He was rude and unkind. " No backpacks allowed," He said I had to leave it on a stack with other backpacks. I'm 65 years old and was offended that he would treat me with such a condescending attitude. Horrible owner/ manager. Skip this theater!

Save your money for a Redbox or iTunes. Staff is unprofessional and owner has exhibited discriminatory seating practices after waiting an hour in line. I guess you can get away with that win you are the the only game in town. Very rude.

My wife and I caught a movie at this place during our recent visit to Kauai. We have been here to see shows over the years and in the past it was rather dated and in need of updating. On our most recent visit we found that the seating had been updated and they now use digital projection along with... More
