Kimo Theater 1950s

History of Albuquerque’s KiMo Theater | New Mexico

Built in 1927 on the corner of Central Avenue and Fifth Street in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Kimo Theater was the dream of Italian-American businessman Oreste Bachechi and his wife Maria Franceschi Bachechi. Prior to the construction of KiMo Theater, Oreste Bachechi operated Pastime Theater with Joe Barnett under Bachechi Amusement Association. Designed by the Boller Brothers architecture firm, the Pueblo Deco (fusion of Art Deco and Pueblo Revival) architecture and Native American art motifs on the two-storey building’s exterior and interior took months of research by Carl Boller before a final design was presented to the Bachechi couple.
