FREE: Tour of the KiMo Theatre

Overview

FREE: Guided tour of the historic KiMo Theatre 
The KiMo Theatre opened on September 19, 1927 as a Pueblo-Decco picture palace and vaudeville Theatre.  Built by Oreste and Maria Bachechi and designed by architect Carl Boller, the public tour of the KiMo will highlight the building’s flamboyant architectural style that fused the spirit of southwest Native American cultures with art modern elements that were popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

The creation of the name “KIMo”, the theatre’s role as an integral part of downtown for over 90 years, recent upgrades to the facility and even a word or two about the fateful events in August, 1951 that have led many to believe that the ghost of seven-year old boy lingers in the building will all be featured in this 60+ minute long tour.
