Kilauea Visitor Center auditorium to close for upgrades

The auditorium in Kilauea Visitor Center at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park will close temporarily from April 8-15 for system upgrades. The visitor center will remain open, but park films normally shown in the auditorium will not be shown during this time.

Long-needed improvements to the auditorium include a new sound system, a bulbless projector, a new screen with a 16-by-9-foot surface ratio, new lighting and a new computer controller interface for multimedia presentations.

The work will be supervised by the National Park Service and is funded by park entrance fee revenue.
