Situated along RT66 in the heart of downtown Albuquerque; Stop by the Kimo Theater to enjoy a movie, play or other attraction. Newly refurbished, Immerse yourself into the native-deco styles and relax. A good view and excellent acoustics make for a pleasant audio-visual experience. Seats were comfortable and spacious enough for me (average build). Partake of a refreshing beverage in... More

We were here for the Western Music Convention. The details are amazing, down to the swastikas. Acoustics are great. A must see while in town.

It is a historic theater and the detail is fascinating. You must go to a talk or a concert of any kind just to experience it. The Kimo is like going back in history. Next door is a cool art gallery - part of the theater and has fun exhibits.

I've seen Arlo Guthrie in concert many times at the Kimo as well a several other events and performances, and it's wonderful. The acoustics are great and the theater is absolutely beautiful.

Spectacularly well-done revitalization of a Southwest treasure. On old Route 66 -- Central Ave. -- it's a vibrant beauty among awful 70's and 80's architecture that makes up the bulk of downtown.

We had a little time to kill before our flight so decided to drive over to the KiMO Theater. Sooo glad we did. It's a little bit of history and some wonderful art all around you. It's a small theater decorated in the art deco style with Native American and southwest elements. It's been placed on the National Register of... More

This theater is both historic and beautiful and opened in 1927. It was designed by Carl Boller, a Kansas City architect, in the extravagant Art Deco-Pueblo Revival Style. The exterior is beautiful and available to see any day of the week. The interior is unlike any other theater in the United States. It has been extensively restored and updated so... More
