Interesting topic. I'm actually surprised that with the influx of tiki in the 50-60s there aren't more movies that people can point to since movies are a reflection of the times.

Off hand right now the only thing I can think of, not a movie even but a TV show, would be The Brady Bunch's "The Tiki Caves". Episode very much about tiki. Mentioned it to my husband who said "oh yeah, isn't that the episode they go to Hawaii and Vincent Price is in it?"
So memorable.

Always wanted my dad to take us to Hawaii on vacation, partially because I had seen shows like this and knowing my dad had been in Hawaii during the war.

Now off topic here but has anyone in SoCal been to the Montclair "Mission Tiki Drivein Theater"?
http://missiontiki.com/about/ . I was looking at the photos of the theater grounds with their tiki statutes, including those in their archival photos from their About page, and looks like a fun place. Now driveins were something we enjoyed a lot of back in the 50s-60s. Always a treat. I would have loved it if ours was like this. Like tiki bar/restaurants, not a lot of them left around.

Mission Tiki Drive in is pretty cool....they did a really good job and is well maintained....in the snack bar building they even have a tiki gift shop with shirts, etc including a mug of a tiki holding a bag of popcorn......it's not always open (weekends in the summer only I think) but I'm impressed its there.....I wish I was able to get out and enjoy that drive in more often actually
