I was bored this weekend watching tv and was watching "Spy Hard" with Leslie Nielsen. There's a scene in front of a museum that has 4 or 5 tikis out in front of it.



I never watched this movie front to back...glad I did today.

My gal-pal Charlie was torturing me the other day by playing dozens of on-demand movie previews instead of just starting Tucker & Dale VS Evil (which is funny as heck,BTW).

One of these trailers was for a movie called Haunted Frat which, in theory i imagine, might appeal equally to anyone with a fetish or phobia of being chased by a bunch of possessed college guys wearing nothing but tighty-whiteys.

Anyway, there amidst all the the oiled abs and underpants was a big California style Tiki I recognized at once to be the the work of Malibu mega-carver Zach Zachary! Oasis 2006 attendees may remember his towering tiki monolith guarding the entrance to the Hanalei outdoor vending area.

Check out his work then the attached clip.

I caught part of Barry Munday the other day and it has a couple of scenes in a tiki bar and an apartment with tiki masks in it.







The location information states it was filmed in Los Angeles, so is there a tiki bar with fish tanks for bartops?

I suspected as much, I was just searching the Bahooka website and found this image of the bar..



..the Tiki Central thread is seriously in need of having it's image link renewed.

Dont know if this one was mentioned but the movie back to the beach is full of tiki. One of my favorit films from the 80's.

As a matter of fact, yes! It has been mentioned:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=302&forum=1&vpost=593253

One way to learn if something has been mentioned already is to use the Search function found at the top right of the TC screen.

I am currently struggling through a lame romantic comedy called You Did What? (2006) which has a sub plot about the leading man opening a Tiki bar, from the outside shots of the bar it appears to have been filmed in the possibly defunct Point Break Surfin' Tiki Club.

There's a moai in the new Aardman film The Pirates! Band of Misfits. (Release date 4/27/12)

Also there's a monkey butler.

The Elvis classic, Blue Hawaii. Not a tiki in sight.




not so...

in the restuarant, after Elvis performs "Hawaiian Sunset" and as the Garveys walk in,
you can see a stylized Tiki in the top right of the screen...






also, recently caught another look at "Ensign Pulver" which contains some Tiki imagery.

Just seen a great British B movie called the Leather Boys(1963)all about the Ton Up boys racing bikes and great locations including the Ace cafe in north London,I last saw this about 20 years ago and its still great, However the main interest is they main couple spend a holiday in the Bognor Regis Butlins and are in the Beachcomber bar with piped hawaiian music in the background, Here are a few of pics with one showing a couple of tikis behind the bar, The one on the right is the same design they had as souvenir mug!

Ah proof that Butlin's had full size versions of their signature tiki, you can see them in this postcard but you can't see the lower part of the tiki.
