Sometimes as "Theater". Opened in 1927 at 419-423 W. Central Avenue in Albuquerque, financed by businessman Oreste Bachechi. Considered one of the best surviving examples of Pueblo Deco architecture. A contest was held to name the new theatre; the winner was Isleta Pueblo Governor Pablo Abeita. In its time the KiMo hosted many famous personalities, including Ginger Rogers, Sally Rand, Gloria Swanson, and Tom Mix. Purchased by the city in 1977 and restored for use as a community arts center featuring film, concert, and theatrical performances.
