Second-row seating for actor alumni of the classic Five-0.
Warm summer sunshine and a cloudless blue-sky meant lots of beach umbrellas.
An hour away from sunset, the crowd was estimated at about 3,000-plus.
The advantage for media covering a premiere in Hawaii? A red carpet in the sand.
Cast member Alex O' Loughlin's biggest admirers: The "Long Legs O'Loughlin" online fan club. Members flew in from the mainland U.S., Canada and as far away as England, Brazil and Germany to meet up at the premiere and meet the object of their affection. O'Loughlin wound up bolting from the red carpet just to meet them.
