Spotlight shines on new chef-inspired menu and lobby installation from local artist Kamea Hadar at completion of theater renovation
Reading International, Inc. (NASDAQ CM: RDI) is proud to invite the community to experience the newly reimagined Consolidated Theatres with TITAN LUXE at the Mililani Town Center on Friday, June 28. The completion of the renovation features a tastefully crafted menu by Chef Santos Loo along with signature cocktails, and the lobby will showcase a stunning installation from acclaimed local artist Kamea Hadar. Guests may continue to enjoy the recently renovated auditoriums with luxury recliners and reserved seating.
“We are delighted to welcome Mililani moviegoers into this beautiful theater, complete with all the latest amenities and introducing an exciting new food and beverage program,” said Rod Tengan, Consolidated Theatres division manager. “Guests can relax in ultimate comfort, get fully immersed in an unparalleled cinematic experience, and indulge in dinner with a movie.”
Under the direction of established chef and food stylist, Santos Loo, elevated menu items created in the newly built kitchen will be available, including dishes that will premiere exclusively at the Mililani theatre location before rolling out to other Consolidated Theatre locations such as `Ōlino and Ward. An assorted selection of local and international wines, craft beers, and cocktails curated by Chef Adrienne Ishizu, food and beverage manager for Consolidated Theatres, complement the menu. Moviegoers will have the opportunity to meet Chef Santos Loo and Chef Adrienne Ishizu throughout the weekend launch of the menu to learn more about their inspirations and sample new creations.
“When is the last time you went to the movies and had Belgian waffles with fruit? How about Loco Moco? When we develop a menu, I get excited about working with different ingredients and creating something unexpected,” said Chef Santos Loo, a veteran of the Food Network. “We have such a talented culinary team at Mililani, supervised by Chef Ishizu, and we’re looking forward to the community enjoying delicious food in a theater that has been beautifully rendered from end-to-end.”
At the heart of the lobby, the art installation from Kamea Hadar, co-lead director of POW! WOW! Worldwide, will honor the love story around the Hawai’i legend of Naupaka and the beautiful half-blooming flowers that represent a symbol of hope and eternal love. Renowned for his work that includes large scale murals found in cities around the world, Kamea’s piece for Consolidated makes a striking impression, and fittingly celebrates a movie theatre chain that has been entertaining Hawai`i for over a century. The artwork will additionally be featured as a new design on Consolidated Theatres gift cards, and also offered as an e-gift card online.
“This theater has been home to so many movie memories for the community,” said Kamea. “It’s an honor to be a part of this new space where even more families will get to come together and enjoy an experience for generations to come.”
