Because he wants to show off the brand-new silver screen at the historic KiMo Theatre, Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry is inviting everyone to a free screening of the 2000 Western All the Pretty Horses. It’ll take place on Friday, March 16, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Director Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) filmed this modern tale of romance and betrayal right here in New Mexico.
