Construction of the Tanimoto Theatre as a silent movie house began in 1929, and was finished in 1932. The building withstood the fire of 1948, which burned the lower makai(ocean) side of Kainaliu. Movies changed from silent movies to talkies and the Aloha Theatre became a gathering place for the mauka(mountain) community.
Since 2003 the Aloha Theatre has been the home of the Kona Association for the Performing Arts(KAPA). Concerts, plays and performing arts are presented. The Aloha’s long legacy of showing films continues and includes arthouse films, independent films and film festivals such as the Hawaiian International Film Festival.
