Status: Sacred Site, Former Cannery, Operational Theater, Urban Legend
This theater sits on the site of a former Dole Cannery which was closed in 1991. Hence the name
It is also rumored the Cannery – and therefore the theatre – was built on an ancient Hawaiian heiau or sacred site. Many of these sites are benign but this one, apparently, was used for blood sacrifices – both animal and human.
There is also a legend – which cannot be historically substantiated – that there was a fatal school bus accident near this location in the 1980’s.
Theater 14 is said to be haunted by a man in his 50’s. His apparition is seen in the back corner of the theater.
The disembodied sounds of children talking and laughing is said to be heard in the bathrooms. This, according to legend, traces its origins back to the school bus accident.
Theater patrons have also reported cold spots and a feeling of being watched and not alone.
