A Short Story By a Local Maui Rental Car Company
Iao Valley Theatre built in 1928, is located in the historic and quaint town of Wailuku. Nestled among some of the most unique and eclectic shops on Maui, Iao Theatre has a presence and facade that is old world charm at its best. Having fallen into disrepair in the late 1980s and facing demolition in the 90s, the theatre was listed on the State of Hawaii Register of Historic Places and brought back to her former glory.
From the moment you walk through her doors you will find yourself imagining all that has taken place on her beautiful stage. The red velvet curtains hang with such elegance, presence and wonder. The squeaky floors that have had so much life and so many generations walk, skip and run across them. The sconces that so softly but directly lead you to your seat.
While the theatre hosts many types of performances for audiences of all ages, the Sunday matinees of productions starring Mauis own local stars have become a favorite of many. There’s something about a lazy Sunday afternoon ……getting lost in conversation with the most intriguing and curious members of the Adams Family, adventuring through the action filled mountains and forests with Peter Pan, immersing yourself in the magical world of Christmas with Buddy the Elf or simply imaging yourself laying in a meadow of wildflowers listening so intently to see if you can hear what Horton hears.

From the printed programs and scrumptious treats (sometimes home made) at concessions, to the costumes and just keeping the lights on; you are supporting local.
