Be aware that parking is around the back- the theater itself is roomy, comfortable, colorful, and historic. No elevator. Balcony seats feel like you are on stage. Very good acoustics. Saw Keb' Mo' there and realized that there is really no place to dance in front of the stage, but that did not stop anyone who wanted to move to... More

It's wonderful to walk into the coolness of the KIMO and feel the history of the building. The décor is unusual but very artistic, think Georgia O'Keefe. It's a small theater so the feel is intimate and if you are over 50 it FEELS like theaters used to!

Talk about character! If you live in or are visiting Albuquerque do yourself a favor and see what is playing at the Kimo. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful restored theater in western art deco style in downtown Albuquerque, NM . Always a pleasure to see an event in this space! It's worth going just to see the space itself!

One of the first theaters in Albuquerque. Unique mix of Native American symbols decorate venue. They've been upgrading the seating, which was quite tight.

Go see any show you're interested in here at the Kimo, and it will be so much better. Every seat is good. You will feel lkie you're with an extended family.

The KiMo is pretty unique.It is a theater that whenever I have people visiting I try to take them for a play, movie or show. The history and decoration is SO New Mexico! Parking can sometimes be a challenge, since The KiMo is at the heart of downtown, so try and get there with time before any event. The staff... More

I love the Kimo; it is really unique, and very funky. The acoustics are good, and all the seats have a good view of the stage. They give tours of the building because it is so unusual!

The Kimo is a an historic jewel in the middle of downtown Albuquerque. The architecture and decoration are the epitome of the old southwest Indian style. To see a performance there is sure to be a delight, or just tour the building and step back into a bygone era.
