Stunning, artistic, historic and any other superlative you can come up with. Great tiles and murals! Railings to the balcony are supported by roadrunners! Would love to enjoy a movie here.

Stop by the Kimo and look at the beautiful renovation they have done, take a peek at the Route 66 memorabilia and if you can catch a flick on the silver screen, do so. It is an awesome place to watch movies.

I loved my experience at the Kimo theatre. It was a unique experience for me to see "Two Lane Blacktop", a movie from 1971, on the big screen. The movie wasn't great, but the ambiance was fantastic and movie tickets are only $5.00. They also...More
