This architectural gem earned its unusual name when Isleta Pueblo
governor, Pablo Abeita, suggested KiMo,
which means "king of its kind" The theater's pueblo/deco architectural style and lavish interior murals make it a true picture palace. Built in 1927 it was one of the main stopping centers during the glory days of Route 66
(Central Avenue). Young entertainers who graced its stage included the likes of Vivian Vance, Gloria Swanson, Tom Mix and Ginger Rogers. The KiMo seats 700 comfortably with an orchestra pit for 30-40 musicians.
