We read about this place and stopped by on Saturday, June 23, to see this beautiful theatre. From the outside, we were in awe of the exterior beauty. After this, the whole experience goes totally south due to the Diva of Darkness behind the reception...More

Very interesting venue. We enjoyed the complementary hour tour and lecture. The architecture and decor is unique and fascinating. Although we did not see a performance here, would definitely return to do so.

Constructed in 1927 in the extravagant Pueblo Revival/Art Deco architectural style, it blends adobe decorative motifs from indigenous cultures and linear elements of Art Deco architecture common in the 1920s.

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.
