About Taking an Oahu Movie Location Tour:
For generations of movie goers and TV enthusiasts, Oahu has provided the backdrop for some of the most iconic films and television series ever created.
For Baby Boomers it was the Banzai Pipeline at Ehukai Beach in the title sequence of Hawaii Five O. For Generation X it was Magnum P.I. living in a seaside mansion on the famous North Shore (though locals know the mansion actually resides on the windward side of the island in Waimanalo). Millennials will recognize various locals around Oahu from the show Lost.
Several movies were also shot on the island including the opening sequence of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbor, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and the list goes on.
Taking an Oahu Movie Location Tour is a popular Honolulu Activity for visitors of Oahu, and there are a number of tour companies running film and TV location tours. Hawaii Movie Tours will take you out to Ka’a’awa Valley, well known as “Hollywood’s Hawaii Backlot” due to the decades of filming that has taken place. This spot has been popular since the 1960’s with Elvis’ Paradise Hawaiian Style, and it continues to be a favorite of filmmakers such as those who shot 2004’s Fifty First Dates, starring Adam Sandler.
Kualoa Ranch, as the valley is also known, can be recognized from many television series as well. Most recently, scenes from the reboot of Hawaii Five O and portions of Lost were shot at this location. The tour is ninety minutes long and is $35 for adults and $25 for children.
