I was looking around some more today, and in keeping with the topic, found this site selling MP3 CDs of vintage radio shows from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel's ballroom... http://www.otrcat.com/royal-hawaiian-hotel-p-48709.html It's kind of a fun listen if you're into Big Band era broadcasts from glamourous hotels with the top Tinsel Town stars of the Twenties and Thirties.

I spoke to a shop owner at the Royal Hawaiian
He also said (confirmed) that it was taken down at night because
none of the employees would remove it.

He seemed to remember it being in a movie back in the 60s
Something with a girl surfing

Well what do you know
Found it

Nice screen grabs Hang 10. I grabbed a few more images of the Tiki in action with the hotel guests and entertainers.







The last one has a Hawaii and South Seas Curio sign behind the Tiki.
