The new KiMo sign is awesome

When I rolled up to the Alibi offices a couple doors down from the KiMo, a dude in a cherry-picker was trying to wrangle this thing into place. It’s really lovely. In this week’s feature by Jessica Cassyle Carr (online later today), Mayor Richard Berry talks about embracing and restoring the odd old buildings in Burque to help us avoid turning into a “cookie-cutter city.”

The KiMo is 84-years-old and was part of a trend in the early 20th century to create elaborate movie houses. On Friday, there’s going to be a dedication of the sign that includes a screening of Metropolis with a live score by Alloy Orchestra. Tickets are $25 and available at the KiMo Ticket Office or through Ticketmaster.
