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

Horrible staff. Rude, inconsiderate, discriminatory attitudes. Dirty and awful smelling theaters. Not sanitary at all! Unfortunately the only cinema this side island. But still not worth the money spent for an awful experience.

My adopted mother took me and my adopted sisters (all 15) to the theater today to reward us for our good grades. When arriving to this cinema, we decided that we want to watch Kung Fu Panda 3, just walking in (I Guess by our age) she assumed that we came to watch a rated R movie and immediately asked... More

This is a charming little multiplex. We saw Star Wars. The auditorium is interesting in that the aisle is the middle. (Kind a old school) The sound and picture were great. The staff was nice. Wish I was going to be there in Feb 2016 for their Film Festival. Great movies.

We enjoyed seeing a movie on our vacation, and were delighted to find a small audience sharing a large theater, so we had an unobstructed view of the screen.
