Step back into the 1920's when you go to this theater! The Byrd is a great place for a date. With the beautiful chandelier to the red carpet, you will feel like royalty walking in...

A Richmond Tradition 12/15/2005

If you aspire to be a true Richmonder, you must visit the Byrd. An experience like no other, it's an old-fashioned theater with a loyal local following. Although many of the $1.99 films are second-run, you'll also find foreign films and a well-edited selection of Hollywood's best. more

A historic landmark 8/16/2005

The Byrd Theatre should be experienced by everyone, especially on the weekends when an organ rises from the ground. Old, historic landmark. A must see. more

Midnight golden oldies & French films 8/11/2005

I love that the Byrd Theatre offers cheap viewings of classic movies at midnight ... alright, "classic" for my generation. Who wouldn't want to see "The Goonies" on the big screen again? They also host the VCU French film festival every year, which provides a little bit of class to those of us looking to watch a film in subtitles. My only complaint (and it's a big one) is that the seats are not only uncomfortable but almost unseatable by the end of a film. They are AWFUL. I wish some renovation could be done to replace them, but I guess that's part of the appeal. I'd rather watch the film standing, thank you very much. more

Great Place 8/9/2005

This is a great theatre, and one of my first memories from when I first came to Richmond.The Byrd Theatre features a beautiful interior, with a large chandalier and a balcony.They also have a Wurlitzer organ, which is played before some movies,it rises up out of the stage.They also feature Saturday Night midnight movies.The concession prices are reasonable.My only complaint is,of course, the very uncomfortable seats.But it is a great place for a fun, cheap date! more

Great Experience for Short People 8/9/2005

Unfortunately I am tall. Usually I have to want to see a movie pretty bad if I want to sit through the torture that is the Byrd Theater. Don't get me wrong, the theater is a beautiful historical landmark, but the seats have not been renovated since humans were significantly shorter than they are today. On a positive note, one can't beat the price of admission ($2) and their reasonably priced concessions. more

The Byrd is a great 20's style theatre 8/4/2005

Where else can you go and see staff dressed in 1920's clothes, a twirling wurlitzer rise up out of the floor, and a midnight showing of "Dial M for Murder" in 3-D?? This is a real theatre! It's fun, interactive, local and enjoyable! They have annual French film festivals, midnight movies from the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' to old classics like Hitchcock -- the little intro that you see on screen at a new theatre isn't what you get here -- HERE you get a locally filmed special which nearly everyone in the audience knows the words to -- you'll love it if you go, it's a true original! more
