It is essentially abandoned at the moment, looking worse every day.

This Hawaii Tribune-Herald article from December 27, 2019 about the theater’s current situation even references the description on this Cinema Treasures page saying “…it was the go-to theater for some 8,000 residents and 10,000 troops stationed at South Point, according to”:

I was the manager from 1979-2006. We shut the doors when the owners, Weinberg Foun., refused to fix the leaking roof. The theater was denied historical status by the owners. This would have opened up funding from restoration grants. I’m afraid the theater is doomed by “demolition by neglect”.

Looks like the roof fell in and flooded the place. A local main street organization is applying for a lease from the Weinberg Foundation, but they don’t have much money or support. Local contractor estimates repairs at $150,000.
