Enjoyed a showing of "Joy" (Jennifer Lawrence) this past weekend at the Byrd. This majestic movie palace is undergoing a slow renovation that will be absolutely stunning when eventually completed. The movies are $1.99 and the snacks are all at 1970's prices. It's a bit musty and the seats are in bad shape (scheduled to be replaced in 2017) but... 更多
I saw Bridge of spies with Tom Hanks and heard the famous Wurlitzer Organ which is played on Saturday nights. Great 2nd run movies for $1.99! Beautiful old theater. Only drawback is the uncomfortable seats.
IF you have NEVER been inside the BYRD, you have missed a very special part of Richmond history. This place reminds me of theatres in Moscow when we saw the ballet there........we went to see the movie (many are $1.99) what a deal!! the Martian was playing BUT the real show starts 15 min early when the guy on the... 更多
This place is for those of us who don't like history very much, but still like to experience it. The art, chandeliers, bathrooms, and architecture will take you back in time, but the best part is that you can still enjoy something modern with the movies! The food is great too and a lot cheaper than going out to the... 更多
This charming theater is a wonderful movie spot. Cheap tickets, no previews, and awesome vintage decor! Plus, it's located in the quaint and quirky Carytown, so there are lots of places to eat or get dessert before or after.
My husband and I have been to several movies at this location, and it is a great historic location. The theater is currently being restored, so you will need to be ready for some older amenities, but if you are looking for a great place to watch a movie that is steeped in history this is your location. The only... 更多
The first time we went to the Byrd, we saw "The Artist". Talk about total immersion! What better way to watch a silent film than in the red velvet seats surrounded by wonderful artwork and details of an era long-gone. Even more enjoyable was the totally unexpected pre-concert, on "the Mighty Wurlitzer" organ, played by the talented Bob Gulledge. In... 更多
My daughter is eight years old and loves going to the movies so The Byrd Theater prices are very convenient and the popcorn is really good. There are no previews so that is a plus, the bad side is parking is hard to find so make sure you get there with enough time to find a parking spot and walk... 更多
I watched Mad Max Fury Road at this theater where the tickets only cost $2,- with a wonderful Wurlitzer organ as a starter to the movie. It's a very Bohemian area of Richmond and a joy to visit.
One of the overlooked flawa of the Byrd theater has been the bad projector. Not anymore as now eith the new projector, the screen is crystal clear. Bob has been on the Wurlitzer organ for 19 years, and still kicking it. Renovations are on the horizon and the theater packs out on Saturday nights. This is one place I love... 更多
