FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 14, 2001

SUNSET ON THE BEACH UPDATE

The City and its partners, the Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, News8 and K5 will present another fun-filled event this weekend to spur economic revitalization in Waikiki. 

“Sunset on the Beach,” an expansion of the popular “Brunch on the Beach” concept, will continue this Saturday and Sunday nights (November 17 and 18) at Queen’s Surf Beach. 

            “We were pleased that thousands of residents and visitors enjoyed the two-day event last week,” said Mayor Jeremy Harris.  “Some residents took advantage of the many great hotel discounts and spent their three-day holiday in Waikiki.”  

 “Sunset on the Beach” offers residents and visitors a chance to enjoy great food from a variety of local restaurants, experience Hawaii’s magical golden sunset, hear exciting local entertainment and watch movies on a giant 30-foot screen while picnicking on the beach or dining on tables and chairs set on the Kapahulu Pier. 

            All movies shown have either been shot in, or have some connection to, Hawaii.  Restaurants and food vendors participating this weekend include Seafood Village, The Hau Tree Lanai, Dixie Grill, Davey Jones Ribs, Skyline Café, Naniwa-ya, Paniolo Popcorn and Royal Hawaiian Hotdogs. 

Residents and visitors may purchase food from tents set up on the beach and enjoy live entertainment from 4 to 6 p.m.  A segment of KHNL’s award-winning “Hot Hawaiian Nights” and an episode from The Travel Channel’s “Girl Meets Hawaii” will be shown prior to viewing the featured films. 

Saturday, the featured film is Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park; on Sunday, the original 1958 version of South Pacific will be shown. 

The Saturday-Sunday “Sunset on the Beach” will continue weekends through the end of the year.   While the format remains the same, the movies and entertainment will change each week.
