“Most New Mexican theater in New Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

It's small, but authentic. They don't do very good at vending. You typically cannot buy or carry snacks into the theater. But it's intimate, clean and ornate, and they do a lot of cool movies and performances.

“Go, even if nothing's playing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

An unforgettable example of art deco restored to perfection, The Kimo is a local treasure. It's just beautiful, one of those spaces that makes you happy just being there. We went to the Academy Awards bash.Don't miss it if you're in town then. But get to The Kimo, even if nothing's playing.

“Lovely and unique theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We only admired it from the outside and it was unique and lovely to be sure. We stopped by two afternoons to see if it was open for a peek inside but it was closed up tight both times and the office next door was also locked. As terrific as it is on the outside it must be lovely inside as well but I guess we'll have to search for photos on line. It is especially unique since it is on the very commercial Central Avenue in the middle of Albuquerque. We had the feeling it is not used often or regularly.

Love this little theater. The independent movies they show here are always top notch. Last xmas my family and I went and saw A Christmas Story here and had a great time. Highly recommended

“Kimo Theater Looks Better Than The Seats Feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Yep! Choose seats wisely. Rows are crowded, and seats are old. Theater is gorgeous with great historical architecture and artifacts, but a long concert, even with an intermission, is hard to handle due to the less than excellent seats.
