News About This Theater
Opened September 8, 1939 with John Wayne in “Stagecoach”. The Varsity Theatre was designed by architect C.W. Dickey for Consolidated Theatres. During the late-1960’s and early-1970’s, the University of Hawaii used the theatre as a large daytime lecture hall.
On March 22, 1985 it was converted into a two-screen theatre, and since the late-1980’s, the Varsity Twin Cinema had specialized in bringing a loyal Hawaiian audience their newly-released art-house films.
After nearly 70 years, the Varsity Twin Cinema closed its doors on June 17th, 2007. It was demolished in early-2008, initial plans are to use the site for parking.
