this shot is interesting because it is possibly taken at the same time as the middle photo in the postcard you posted above because it has George Kainapau on the marquee. Unless he returned there every summer like Arthur Lyman did to the Bali Hai San Diego? George was a major Hawaiian recording artist in the 1950s and 60s recording with Bell Records and Decca https://www.discogs.com/artist/1046747-George-Kainapau
