The Halona Blowhole Lookout parking lot is scheduled to be closed until 10 p.m. tonight for the filming of scenes from the Netflix feature “Finding Ohana.”
City officials said that the crew will have large-scale film equipment in the parking lot. For the safety of the public, the parking lot will be closed for the day while filming takes place. At first, the city reviewed the initial request to share the parking lot with the public, but is erring on the side of caution with this scheduled closure.
The film, “Finding Ohana,” by director Jude Weng, is about two Brooklyn-raised siblings who spend the summer in rural Oahu, searching for long-lost treasure and reconnecting with their Hawaiian heritage. She is also the director of “Young Sheldon.”
The film’s cast includes Kea Peahu, Alex Aiono and Kelly Hu.
