Did you watch your first motion picture at the KiMo Theatre? Did you take your kids to see the Nutcracker for the first time at the KiMo? Or maybe you saw the ghost of Bobby in the lobby? If you have memorable KiMo moments, the KiMo wants you to retell them as part of the theater’s 90th Anniversary Season of Celebration.
Community members will have four windows of opportunity to submit their memorable KiMo moments for a chance to win great prizes and to be featured in a video that will promote not only the diversity of the theater’s programming through the years, but also the diversity of the community’s experiences at the historic picture palace.
March’s category is Memorable Movie Moments. From now until March 20, entries can be submitted at https://goo.gl/FXkSYT; mailed to KiMo Memorable Moments, 423 Central Ave. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102; or dropped off at the KiMo during normal business hours. Entry forms can also be requested and submitted via email at Kimo90@cabq.gov.
Entrants can submit no more the two memorable moments, submitted separately, per category. A panel of judges will review all entries and select the top two stories in each category with winners being announced by the end of each of the contest months. A variety of prizes will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd Place winners in each category. The top four winners will be placed in a final Grand
Prize drawing to be held in early December 2017. A number of people will be selected to appear in a promotional video describing the memorable moment. Entrants must be at least 18 years old to participate.
Other categories include: Memorable Romantic Moments (June 1-20), Memorable Scary Moments (October 1-20) and Memorable Holiday Moments (November 1-20).
Throughout the year, the KiMo will look back through the decades with trivia, “then and now” posts and “remember when” features. Memorable KiMo Moments is yet another opportunity for the community to join the walk down memory lane.
