The Toyo Theatre opened June 16, 1938, designed by noted Hawaii architect C.W. Dickey. The theatre was located on College Walk near Beretania Street and served the Japanese population in Honolulu’s Chinatown. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, the theatre was renamed Aala Theater on December 31, 1941 and presented English language movies only. It reverted back to the Toyo Theatre name after the end of World War II. The theatre presented both live shows and movies, though by the late-1960’s and early-1970’s it was showing adult movies.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
