DOUBLE FEATURE: ARCHIVAL PRINT! GIDGET GOES HAWAIIAN, 1961, & PARADISE, HAWAIIAN STYLE, 1966
Saturday, July 13 – 4:00 PM 15TH ANNUAL TIKI NIGHT
We commemorate the 60th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood with a pair of 1960s island-set favorites
Double Feature: Archival Print! GIDGET GOES HAWAIIAN, 1961, Sony Repertory, 101 min. Dir. Paul Wendkos. Future 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. PARADISE, HAWAIIAN STYLE, 1966, Paramount, 91 min. 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. A Tiki Marketplace will open at 1:30 PM in the Egyptian Theatre Courtyard, selling new and vintage tiki-related art, memorabilia, clothing, accessories and more. Starting at 5:00 PM, King Kukulele & The Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers will perform alongside a no-host bar. Join us at 6:30 PM in the lobby, where author Ed Rampell will sign his The Hawaii Movie and Television Book. First feature begins at 7:30 PM. Special Ticket Prices: $18 General, $15 Members. No vouchers.
