The Hawaii Theatre
The Hawaii Theatre - Built 1922, Honolulu, HI
About this creation












The Hawaii Theatre is located in downtown Honolulu, near Chinatown. Opened in 1922, the "Pride of the Pacific" was an active venue till the 1980s, when it was abandoned. It reopened in 1996 after a massive restoration, was recognized as the 'Outstanding Historic Theatre in America' in 2005 by the League of Historic American Theatres and, in 2006, was awarded an Honor Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is now listed on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places. You can find photos of the real thing here and here.


This MOC captures much of the architectural detail of the original. The front lower floor is built entirely with SNOT, mostly sideways. The arches are 14 studs wide making them complex to model. The marquee is lit from inside using the old 4.5V light system. The building can be split in two parts easily for transport. Not including the park (currently incomplete), this MOC is 112 studs wide and 64 studs deep.

Oh wow...I am overwhelmed. This is the kind of thing that I would like to get into doing, on a smaller scale, at least...I don't even know where to begin! How do you develop the concept for such a massive undertaking? Wonderful design. Simply amazing.
