The Kaua’i premiere of Just Go With It, starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, attracted special guests earlier this month at Kukui Grove Cinema in Lihu’e. Heavy rains made for a perfect movie night and prompted film commissioner Art Umezu to call it an additional blessing for the romantic comedy which was partially filmed in Kilauea and at Kauapea Beach. In attendance were executive director of Kaua’i Visitor’s Bureau Sue Kanoho, Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho Jr., Office of Economic Development director George Costa, location manager Angela Tillson, and stand-ins Koa Norman and Kaden Bandsma.
