Mobile Spay & Neuter Waggin' on 9/10

Please encourage everyone you know, neighbors with unfixed dogs and cats to get them fixed. If money is the issue, they can get these surgeries done for free! Our 3 island shelters kill on average 10,000 dogs and cats per year simply because too many people here allow them to breed and its too many to find good homes for. Please help us fix this simple problem by having your pets fixed. Thank you.

This World Made Itself is a multimedia live performance work combining projected animation and the artist's own shadow silhouette, as she interacts with the fantastical world of the video, merging film and theater to create a unique kind of spectacle.
This World Made Itself is a visually and musically rich journey through the history of the earth, from the universe's epic beginnings to the complex world of humanity. The piece is at once semi-scientific (like flipping through a children's encyclopedia), and emotional, surreal, and dream-like.
Tickets are $20 General Admission and $10 for Students with Student ID
(or under the age of 18)
This Co-production between the UH Hilo Art Department and the Palace Theater was made possible with support through the Hawaii Community Foundation - Laila Twigg Smith Art Fund, the UH Hilo Droste Bequest and the UH Hilo Art Department visiting artist program.

3RD Annual Hawai`i Island Festival of Birds

Celebrate Hawaii's unique blend of birds - from native honeycreepers found nowhere else in the world to common backyard birds from five continents. The annual Hawaiʻi Island Festival of Birds supports the  Hawaiʻi Island Coast to Coast Birding Trailand the  Hawaiʻi Wildlife Center
The program will include expert guest speakers, a trade show for outdoor and birding equipment, a children's corner, bird-themed arts and crafts fair, photography workshop, a birding film festival, time to interact with Hawaii Island naturalists and bird experts, and guided field trips on land and sea. Friday and Sunday activities include guided birdwatching field trips along the newly created Hawaii Island Coast to Coast Birding Trail, and guided boat trips out of Honokohau Harbor to watch seabirds. The 90-mile Trail crosses Hawaii Island from Kona on the west coast to Hilo on the east coast, from rainforest to lava plains. While birds will be the focal points, elements of Hawaii Island's unique plants and trees, geology, history and of course, scenic view points will also be highlighted.

material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit, a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective.

In 1969, Howard Taylor, brother of actress Elizabeth, bails out a rag-tag band of young Mainlanders jailed for vagrancy and invites them to live on his oceanfront land. Soon, waves of hippies, surfers, and troubled Vietnam vets find their way to this clothing optional, pot-friendly, tree house village at the end of the road on Kauai's North Shore - the ultimate hippie fantasy, order without rules, perched in a pristine forest alongside a tropical Hawaiian beach paradise; until the locals decide it's time for them to go.
This intimate documentary explores what life was like on the Taylor camp. The film has been recut with insightful interviews with the residents, archival portraits, and has been newly remastered in beautiful HD.
