HoMA has had a film program since the 1930s, when it showed classic films in Central Courtyard. The theatre opened in 1977, named in honor of Doris Duke, a generous philanthropist and supporter of Islamic art and culture, jazz and other music and performing arts. The Doris Duke Foundation provided funds for the modernization and re-dedication of the theater in 2000.
