The Park Theatre in downtown Honolulu was on Fort Street at Chaplain Lane from 1909 to 1911. The open-air theater had a wooden railing separating the more expensive 15-cent center section from the cheaper 10-cent seats on the side. Past the high fence surrounding it can be seen Our Lady of Peace Cathedral.
