A friend of a friend of a friend of mine mentioned to me recently that
there was a movie theater in Albuquerque (or the near environs) that
was haunted, possibly by the spirit of a woman who died from choking
or asphyxiation during a movie.

Does anyone in the know on DCF remember hearing anything about this?

I'm asking for research purposes, not for any morbid fascination, in case one should
let that thought enter their mind.

Rudolfo, I was doing a Google search for the article that Robert wrote concerning Hiroshima and this post came up. After months of avoiding Duke City Fix, I had to join so I could comment. I couldn't help but laugh. Thanks. I sure miss that guy. Perhaps I'll go stand outside what used to be Don Pancho's and wait for that hair to float by.
The Kimo is supposedly haunted.
Kimo legend
The Alibi ran a great story about the KiMo haunting some time back, but I can't find the story on their site. I think it was someone who died while being trapped in the theater during the Run for the Zoo, and couldn't get to the hospital in time or something.
Oh, Benny, Benny, Benny...
I thought you were above this kind of post, Mr. Icepick.
Oh, I was hesitant to do it, but I figured Rich would understand it was in good humor.

Well, a teenage girl was murdered inside the Sunshine Theater a few years ago, but that's a concert venue.

The old Memorial Hospital, now being renovated as a boutique hotel, is purported to be haunted by lots of weird ghosties.
I've heard the rooftop bar is cool but expensive. Don't know about the rooms.

In other news, Hotel Andaluz is awesome...
Every building in America close to, or over, 100 years old is haunted, it seems.
Albuquerque used to have a ton of small 2-3 screen cinemas around town (Eastdale, Del Norte, etc.). I so wish we still had those. Unfortunately, we don't. Maybe it was one of those.
Kimo was used as a movie theatre. It is supposed to be haunted by a young boy who was killed in the fire there (I think in the 1950s). There is a shrine to him backstage so his spirit does not disrupt performances.
