The KiMo Theatre -- Cafe -- Albuquerque

 Once a luncheonette and curio shop, the KiMo Cafe is as intriguing as the historic theatre which houses it. The Cafe is filled with movie memorabilia, including some pipes from the original Wurlitzer organ which used to play at silent film performances, which have been made into a truly eclectic art piece. Classic film posters from the KiMo's Picture Palace days of the 1920s and 1930s line the walls. The Cafe also proudly displays a number of "curiosities," including one of the amber-eyed cow skulls from the theatre lobby, Roswell-themed alien artifacts, and a stuffed "jackalope."

 The walls of the Cafe are soundproof to ensure that sound from its nightly screenings of classic Hollywood films does not interfere with the performances at the Theatre. A schedule of upcoming films is posted weekly. Offering a casual yet tasty 'menu,' the Cafe is the ultimate in funky and hip dining. This is a great place to kick back, relax, watch a snippet of a movie... or just grab a quick bite after a performance next door.

The laminated photo bar:

A long narrow bar that curves gently. It's a 1950s mint green covered with a thick plastic shellac. Underneath the laminate, there are various black and white photographs of movie greats placed artfully.

The small table stuck too close to the door:
A plain jane flimsy plastic table surrounded by fold-out chairs. People are seated here when the place gets swamped, and they never look too happy about it. In testament to such, a profuse amount of gum and other adhesive doodads have been applied to the underside in silent protest.

The large table in the middle of the room:
This table has been designed to accommodate a larger party. An entire white wooden door, sans doorknob, sits atop two sawhorses, securely fastened. None of the chairs match. A few are from different dining room sets -- one with no arms, another without a back.

The triangular Ouija board table:
An eclectic one of a kind type table. Within a honey brown wood surface, someone has inset a honest-to-goodness Ouija board. Of course, they've also covered the whole thing with a heavy acrylic shellac and created an object d'art rather than a conduit to the spirit world. Each iron-wrought chair has a colorful, oversized square cushion one might imagine to find on the floor of a harem.

The tiki torch booth of fun:
This festive booth is replete with plush plastic red vinyl seats, tiki torches at either side of the bench backs, and a gigantic faux pineapple filled with various sweeteners. Part of an old-style surfboard emblazoned with the words 'Blue Hawaii' serves as the table.

The dimly lit half-booth for two:
A remote little lover's nook or a bit of solitude for one. A worn wooden bench facing away from the crowd with only space for two. The table itself is a yellow glittery plastic with metallic trim.
