Beginning at 1:30 PM, entry into the courtyard is free to shop for Tiki art, memorabilia, clothing and accessories in our Tiki marketplace. At 3:30 PM the courtyard closes, except to ticket holders. Vendors include Black Cat Atomic Vintage, Clever Vintage, Eric October, Rarabird, Tiki Swag, artist Stephen Del Tour and more to be announced.

For Ticket Holders Only: At 4:00 PM, author Matthew Locey will give a "Hawaii on Film" presentation in the theatre. At 5:00 PM, enjoy performances from King Kukulele & The Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers, tiki cocktails (by Damien Montanile & Associates) and food available for purchase from food trucks Aloha Fridays & Hang Loose Hawaiian Shaved Ice food, before taking in our double feature, hosted by King Kukulele, at 7:30 PM.

1961, Sony Repertory, 101 min, USA, Dir: Paul Wendkos

Soon-to-be 1960s beach movie favorite Deborah Walley inherits the title role from Sandra Dee in this surf-and-sun-filled romantic comedy. On a Hawaiian vacation with her parents, Gidget finds a gang of lads vying for her affections, which starts a chain of romantic complications when her boyfriend from home, Moondoggie (James Darren), arrives. Perhaps the best of the GIDGET series, the film costars Carl Reiner, Peggy Cass and Eddie Foy Jr. as square-but-loving parents.

1966, Paramount, 91 min, USA, Dir: Michael D. Moore

Elvis Presley makes his final big-screen visit to our 50th state in this music-filled comedy. Presley stars as Rick Richards, a freewheeling former airline pilot who starts a charter helicopter business on Kauai with buddy James Shigeta. Whether shot from the air or the ground, the island visuals are stunning; adding to the fun are co-stars Suzanna Leigh, Marianne Hill and 10-year-old scene-stealer Donna Butterworth, who duets with Elvis on a couple of songs.

Special Ticket Prices: $18 General Admission, $16 Students/Seniors, $15 Members. No vouchers. | Screening formats: 35mm (GIDGET GOES HAWAIIAN), blu-ray (PARADISE, HAWAIIAN STYLE)
