What a place, not to be missed for any event. In fact, the atmospheric theater is enough reason to go. The sound system and seating are excellent. There is not a bad seat in the theater.

Vintage setting for many venues. I often go to see a filmed ballet or opera. Many unusual offerings, lovely theater, interesting crowd. May purchase drinks and snacks at intermission.

This is a historic movie theater that is still in operation. The Art Deco facade and insides is one of its signature trademarks that is well-known. They offer both recent and a few oldies and attract significant crowds for its evening show. Fun!

We attended a concert at the Kimo. The layout in great with every seat having a nice view and the balcony has wonderful view of the stage. There is a parking garage behind the theater for convenient access. My only compliant is that the restroom facilities are not equipped to handle the volume of people during intermission.

A jewel of a place, amazing art and architecture combined. Take photos of the outside and ask the ticket office to permit you to do do inside.

Great venue in the heart of downtown Albuquerque. Historical building with fantastic architecture. The Kimo offers all kinds of performances - flamenco, tango, ballet, plays, concerts and classic movies. Not a huge theater but comfortable seating in an artistic setting.

Make sure you do the self guided tour. Awesome example of Art Deco-Pueblo Revival Style architecture. Watch for the glowing red eyes!
