HONOLULU (KHNL) - The University of Hawaii football games are one of the biggest draws in the State,and they're about to get a lot bigger.

"We are showing the entire season of the University of Hawaii football games here at Koolau theatres," said theatre general manager Arthur Downing.

Theatre six is where this week's game will be shown. There's stadium style seating, air conditioning and of course a very large viewing area.

"The screen is huge, it's eleven feet high by thirty two feet high so it's bigger than any TV that I know of," said promotions manager Rachel Gibson.

The theatre seats only 134 people, so tickets will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Some fans believe this is another great option for them.

"That'll save me time and money to go to the stadium, I just talked to one of the guys who just gave me the price and I think it's worth it," said Kaneohe resident Louis McCabe.

Tickets are 10 dollars a person, although group rates are available.

One thing that won't be available or allowed is alcohol.

"We don't have to drink beer right, we can eat popcorn and soda," said McCabe.

The theatre came up with the idea to give back to the community while offering a family friendly football environment.

"It's a fabulous venue, it's a good location, we have lots of parking for free, you can bring your families and it's still a real celebratory and festive environment," said Gibson.

    Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election.
