Minutes before the screening, executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Peter Lenkov and Rob Orci (from left to right) got the crowd pumped.
The daughters of original Hawaii Five-O creator/producer Leonard Freeman shared stories of their father's love for the series, and a letter their mother Rose Freeman wrote to the new executive producers wishing them well.
The cast of the new Hawaii Five-O takes a bow on stage just before the screening: (from left to right) Alex O'Loughlin (Det. Steve McGarrett), Taryn Manning (Mary Ann McGarrett), Scott Caan (Det. Danny "Danno" Williams), Daniel Dae Kim (Det. Chin Ho Kelly), Grace Park (Det. Kono Kalakaua).
Daniel Dae Kim addressed the crowd on behalf of the cast.
The crowd on Kalakaua Avenue, bordering Queen's Surf Beach, just before showtime.
After the red carpet walk, after the speeches, after the crowd on the beach numbered more than 2,000, the lights finally dimmed for the screening.
Queue the uber-familiar Morton Stevens-penned opening theme, the big wave and seriously loud crowd applause and cheers ... it's showtime!
