I visited the Kon Tiki many years ago (late 80's early 90's?). It was the middle of the day, the place was closed for business and I was just there to shoot a TV news interview with someone for something... I don't remember who or what. We were in the bar area next to the stage, I asked the proprietor to turn on all his lights, he said they were, the place was dark. I remember lots of thatch over the bar and tiki idols... and that's about it. The Kon Tiki was in a former movie theater, which I believe was formerly known as the Don Theater.
