KiMo Theatre

KiMo Theatre

N. W. Perry
This 1927 Pueblo Deco-style theater was designed by Carl Boller for Oreste Bachechi and was renovated through 2002 by the City of Albuquerque. Originally a motion picture house, the venue is now used largely for live performances and functions. The Pueblo Deco style translates southwestern Native American motifs and themes through the Art Deco vocabulary that was current in the 1920s. Probably the most notable example of the style, the KiMo Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The name KiMo is from the Tewa language, meaning "mountain lion" with a connotation of majesty. #architecture #historic #landmark #movie_palace #theater
