Stunning, artistic, historic and any other superlative you can come up with. Great tiles and murals! Railings to the balcony are supported by roadrunners! Would love to enjoy a movie here.

I love the kimono theatre. Beautiful lobby, stage, and theatre area decorated in New Mexican style. Take a few minutes to stop by... It's free with a voluntary donation box.
