Most of the appeal of this theater is its low price and grandeur. The space inside is mind-blowingly big & ornate -- almost cathederal-like. The only con of this place is the seats. They're quite lumpy & while rustic, the upholstery has long given up...More

Though the Byrd recently raised their prices to $4 a ticket, hopefully that will give them the funding for some much-needed renovations, like the long-awaited new seats! Watching a movie at the Byrd is like taking a trip to the past. No visit to Richmond...More

We went to see a movie at this gorgeous theater. Prior to the movie a old organ popped up and a gentleman played for 10-15 minutes. Apparently this happens most Saturday evenings. The theater seats need to be refurbished, but the place is amazing.

Fun place for a 2nd run movie or old classic. Atmosphere is old school, beautiful architecture. Go when they play the Wurlitzer organ - another classic.
