This theatre was built in 1940 by the Hutchinson Sugar Plantation in Na'alehu, Hawaii. It originally had 550 seats and serviced a population of 8,000 residents and 10,000 military troops stationed at South Point on the Big Island. The sugar plantation closed in 1996, and with fewer than 3,000 total population, the theatre ceased running first run movies and opened in 2003 as a plantation movie theatre museum.
There were projection room paraphernalia, photos, a miniature movie theatre collection, and a Donald Duck collection on display and gave guided tours of the projection room. Donations were accepted, there was a guest sign-in book, and a pamphlet about the theatre and the surrounding Ka'u area.
By 2022 the museum had closed and the theatre stood abandoned. It was demolished on March 7, 2023.
