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.

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.

The Kimo theater is one of the jewels of Albuquerque. It is a small , intimate, historic theater with a wonderful Southwestern motif. This theater had it's hey day in the late 20's and '30s.

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.
