All Of New Mexico’s A Stage!

The Land of Enchantment has diverse and top-notch theater – it seems like everywhere you go someone is putting on a show!

Albuquerque, if course, is where much of the action is – Popejoy Hall is the largest venue of its kind in the state, and is the home stage for performers from the University of New Mexico – you can see dance, musicals, drama, and comedy. In tiny Madrid, check out The Engine House Theatre. This atmospheric and historic playhouse comes alive with interactive melodramas – and the audience is encouraged to participate!

Perhaps the state’s most beautiful location is the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe – built in the 1930s, there is something going on here 200 nights a year.  Also in Santa Fe is the Playhouse – it’s the oldest continuously-running theater in the West.

Set against the mountains, Raton’s Shuler Theater is a state landmark where you can see dramas, comedies, musicals, and concerts year-round. Out on the plains in Roswell, the Roswell Community Little Theatre has been around since the 1940s and puts on mysteries, musicals, dramas, comedies, and even dinner theater! In Alto, the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts is beautiful inside and out – its stone came from Spain.

KiMo Theatre

The charm of downtown Albuquerque remains prominent with historical city landmarks. One of Albuquerque's best-known landmarks is the KiMo Theatre. KiMo translates to "mountain lion" in the Tewa language.

This Art Deco-Pueblo Revival Style theater was built in 1927 and features indigenous motifs and terra cotta shields above the third-story windows. Thankfully, local residents saved the theater from demolition in 1977.

The theater has been renovated throughout the years to keep the building current for theater performances and shows. Visit the theater to see feature films, classic films, animated films, live concerts, theater productions, lectures, living history events and ballet in cinema.
