The KiMo Theatre is a historic theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is considered to be the city?s best known landmark, mostly for its appearance, historical significance, and even for being rumored as haunted.

Built in 1927 in the Art Deco-Pueblo Revival style, the KiMo Theater initially operated as a silent movie theater. It was named after the combination of two Indian words that translates literally to ?mountain lion?, but can also be interpreted as ?king of its kind?. The name was from a contest run by the owner of the building, Oreste Bachechi.

The KiMo Theater is rumored to be haunted by the spirit of Bobby Darnall, a six year old boy who was killed in 1951 during the explosion of the boiler in the basement.
