Notes
Survey number HABS HI-57

Significance: The Kamoi Theater is one of three buildings on the island of Molokai that were built expressly as movie theaters. Only the Kamoi, in the town of Kaunakakai, remains; the others, in the towns of Maunaloa and Kualapuu, have been demolished. Of vernacular design, the building is distinctive in its inventive use of space and practical solutions to functional problems. From its completion in 1939 to its closure in 1979, the Kamoi served a significant and multi-faceted role in the cultural and social life of Molokai.
