Movie Under the Stars at Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort

We had the coolest evening the other night! Our friends are staying at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort so we’ve been heading over there all week for some swim time and dinner with friends.  The other night, after swimming in the pirate pool – complete with a pirate ship, slides and cannons shooting water (look for my video on that soon), we headed over to the grass lawn to watch a movie under the stars.

Before the feature they did s’mores.  Each bag, holding one Hershey chocolate bar, 4 marshmallows and two graham crackers costs $5, but it’s worth it to see the kids enjoy this yummy treat.  They had tiny bbqs set up for the kids to do the marshmallow baking – which was safer than the large fire pit they  also on the lawn.

After some gooey marshmallow eating we headed over and laid down our blankets in front of this giant inflatable screen.  Tied between two palm trees…you definitely knew you were in Hawaii!

The sun went down and the stars started coming out over-head.  With the ocean waves crashing on one side of us and the gorgeous resort on the other it was movie time under the stars! 

It was such a fun family outing – made me feel like a kid again!  Thanks to our friends for inviting us!

  1. This is the wonderful place for vacation purpose:-)

  2. Ohhhh I just saw one of those inflatable tvs at Best Buy the other day. That is the coolest idea ever. What movie did you see?

  3. Sounds like a great evening. Watching a movie outside is such an invigorating experience.

    We have been to several outdoor movies that we have come across while traveling. It’s a really great way to have free/cheap family fun and feel like a local. One of my favorites was at Penn’s Landing in Philly. The moon and water were in the background and tons of people from all over the city gathered together to enjoy a free movie.

    We also have one of the last operating Drive-In Movie Theaters just a short drive from our home. For about $5.00 a person you can enjoy two movies, and a few dollars goes much further in the concession stand than it does at a multiplex.

    Summer is not complete without an outdoor movie.

  10. Hi – I am just stopping over after reading your comment on Dooce, because I was amazed by your “scorpion in Hawaii” comment… I lived in Hawaii for 6 years, and one day found one (ironically) dead in the lint trap of my INDOOR dryer!!! I had no idea that Hawaii had scorpions either and was totally freaked out! I’ve sinced moved to the UK (to marry my soulmate, a Britsh man) and love it here. Hawaii and I didn’t get on very well, but I’m glad that you seem to love it there! :)

  11. Oh my gosh that looks like so much fun!!! What a beautiful place to spend the evening with friends and family!
