Public invited to 'light up'

by Elissa Josephsohn

 

The marquee at the historic Hawai‘i Theatre on Bethel Street will be lit up entirely for the first time at a ceremony on Friday, Nov. 5, with festivities beginning at 7:30 p.m. as part of the “First Friday” happenings in downtown Chinatown.

Light Up the Hawai‘i will include the official turning on of the entire neon marquee at 8 p.m., with the successful bidder in the Oct. 9 Neiman Marcus Benefit Caper throwing the switch.

Entertainment for the free outdoor event includes by the Hilton Hawaiian Village Guard, solos by Cathy Foy and Nina Kealiiwahamana, Halau Hula O Kawaili‘a led by Kumu Chinky Mahoe, and lion dancers. Tony Conjugacion will chant the Hawai‘i Theatre’s oli inoa.

There will be refreshments available from the Hawai‘i Theatre’s Commercial Data Concession facing Chinatown Gateway Park, as well as hot dogs from a cart staffed by folks from the Arts at Marks Garage.

The Hawai‘i Theatre, built in 1922, reopened in 1996 after a $22 million interior restoration. The Nov. 5 ceremony marks the official conclusion of the $10+ million exterior renovation.

For more information on upcoming performances, including tickets to Stomp and “A Merry Christmas with Friends and Nabors,” which went on sale in October, call the Hawai‘i Theatre Box Office at 528-0506.
