KiMo Theatre: Albuquerque, New Mexico

Opening in the late 1920's, the KiMo Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico has been a staple to the city for many years. Over the years, the KiMo produced a wide range of shows that brought people from all over to watch. In the 1950's, there was said to be an incident in which a water heater exploded killing a young boy almost instantaneously. In the 1960's, a fire ravaged the theater, causing it to remain empty for years. Eventually, it was bought and restored and the shows now continue to this day.

Although many come to see the shows, some come to see the ghost. The KiMo Theatre is said to be haunted by the spirit of the young boy who died there in the 1950's. According to reports, he likes to play tricks on the performers and patrons. Some reported to have even seen his apparition playing around at various locations. He is notorious for playing with the electricity during performances in an effort to make the performers mess up.

Another apparition is also said to wander the theatre. It is the ghost of an unknown woman. She does not interact with the visitors of the theatre, but she has been seen on several occasions.

The KiMo is still a working theatre, with all kinds of different performances offered throughout the year. If you are in Albuquerque, be sure to stop by and see a show, and maybe a ghost too.
