SUNSET ON THE BEACH JOINS THE KOREAN CENTENNIAL FESTIVAL

            Sunset on the Beach, the city’s popular food-music-movie festival on the beach, partners with the Korean Centennial festival at Kapiolani Park this weekend, January 17 and 18, providing two days of spectacular entertainment for the entire family.

            The Korean Centennial Committee sponsors this weekend’s Sunset on the Beach, in celebration of 100 years of Korean immigration to Hawaii.  Prior to each movie at 7:30 p.m., Sunset on the Beach will present a 25-minute documentary on the Korean American Dream, produced by local author/historian, Tom Coffman.

            Radio stations KCCN FM100 and Oldies 107.9 also sponsor this event.  At 4 p.m., the stations’ deejays engage the audience in fun and contests.  On Saturday, KCCN FM100 bring on the Honolulu Jazz Quartet to entertain.  On Sunday, Oldies 107.9 present Salsa in Paradise to spice things up for the evening’s program.

             Movies this weekend are “Freaky Friday” on Saturday, starring Jamie Lee Curtis as a middle aged housewife who trades places with her teenage daughter.  It’s hilarious and fun for the entire family.

             Sunday, Academy award winner Denzel Washington stars as a detective investigating a murder in which he becomes a suspect.  “Out of Time” is a thrilling who-dunit mystery that is sure to keep the audience at the edge of their seats.

             Participating restaurants include Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog & Shave Ice, Imari Bento & Take Out, Leo’s Greek Taverna, Paradise Water Ice/Sweet Street Deserts, K Restaurant, Time 2 Grind, Bale French Sandwich & Restaurant, Ono Kettle Korn and Pizza Hut.
