I spent the summer of 1964 staying at my best friend's house in Makalapa (33 Halawa)..his father had been Capt. of the Hornet (CVS-12) and was reassinged to CINCPACFLT HQ. We saw many movies at the outdoor theatre... We were 11. I remember the big electric bug zappers on poles around the theatre... snapping and popping all through the films. We'd wad our ticket stubs in our mouths getting them wet and toss them into the zappers to hear them "POP" ! We'd dodge the "buffos" pancaked on the street as we walked home in the dark.

I lived in CHA-3 in the early 50's. I remember going to a theater with a partially covered roof, and long wooden benches. I don't know what the name was, but we walked there, so it wasn't far from the civilian housing area. Once in a while there would be a brief shower, and everyone would move to the back or the sides of the theater until the rain stopped, and then back to the middle to finish the movie. I have very fond memories of those evenings.
I was 12 years old at the time. Anyone know what the name of the theater was?

While stationed at Barber's Point in the mid 50's a
buddy and I went to a theater in Honolulu and while there met a couple Air Force dependents and after the movie, drove them home. One of the young ladies invited us in and introduced us to her father who was an air force officer and told him we had been neighbors while stationed in Japan.
They had a picture of a large dog hanging on the wall and the young lady said "you remember Captain don't you" and I said in a very nervous, shaky voice "yes". I'll never forget, after all these years, the look I got from her father. We cut our visit short, got the hell out of there and never looked back and never saw the little blond again.
That is my Movie House Memory from Hawaii.

siorry, as a girl we could not afford to go to movies.
Those days that you could not afford to go to the movie should have been spent improving your spelling skills. How can it be that you are a Japanese language major when you have a hard time with English? You should master one before trying another.
