For those seeking those unique cultural experience, don't miss this theater. Choose a cultural activity for you, and enjoy it all. It is on the list of historical theaters that have been restored.

This theatre in the downtown heart of Albuquerque has had a recent renovation - return to original art work and marque. Beautiful! One of a kind building to see whether attending an event or just walking thru.

A first time visit to the Kimo Theatre is good and bad. You will be so interested and enthralled by the Navajo Art Deco art you may miss the beginning of the concert. this theatre is a gem and quite unique. Small, intimate and always excellent value for money.

We were by ourselves in the KiMo, on a self-guided tour on a Saturday afternoon. Wish we could've caught a film, too, but we were a little early for screenings. It is really worth taking a few minutes to soak up some of the history of this beautiful old building.

While in Albuquerque, you owe it to yourself to visit this theater at least once. It has been around since 1927, and is a cultural landmark. It has survived the wrecking ball to stand around and anchor this stretch of Central. Interesting design motif inside and out, please note that the swastikas do not imply Nazi connections (seriously).

Participating on 48 Hour Film Project teams each year, I end up visiting the KiMo annually for the screenings. It's clean, has a good sound system & screen, and good seating. The only thing it lacks, being downtown, is decent parking (everywhere is pay parking/structures and there is no ticket validation) The glowing red eyes in the skulls along the... More

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.
