Theater, By the Book

The historic KiMo Theatre in downtown Albuquerque gets its due this Wednesday, May 8, with a special book launch celebration for KiMo Theatre: Fact & Folklore. This freshly published work of nonfiction is a long-germinating project of SouthWest Writers, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to helping both published and unpublished authors. The book is a collection of “newly told stories, articles, insights, opinions, never-before-heard remembrances and researched facts” about the KiMo Theatre as a performing arts theater and as a movie palace. Past employees, elected officials, performers and audience members share remembrances of the theater’s construction, its famous owners and the city’s vote to buy and preserve the building in 1977, as well as the building’s subsequent renovation and rebirth. The book launch party takes place from 6:30 to 9pm at the KiMo (423 Central Ave. NW). The Kalpulli Ehecatl Aztec Dancers, New Mexico Young Actors, the Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico and the Watermelon Mountain Jug Band will be on hand for the event. There will also be a silent auction of KiMo memorabilia and other items. Admission is free and open to the public.
