Byrd Theatre, Richmond: 3 reviews and 3 photos


The Byrd theater is really an important part of the vibrant Carytown experince. This theater has been around for a very long time, and it becomes very apparent from the exterior of the theater. The movies are usually already out of the normal theater but have not yet come to DVD or VHS, which makes it pretty nice if you can hold off when the movie first comes out and watch it. The normal movies play during the day and cost about a $1.50 or $2. On Friday and Saturday nights you can go to the midnight movie, which is usually a very old movie, but one that is pretty popular. The midnight movie that I had the good fortune of watching was the original Jaws, which I had never seen in theater. Seeing it in theater especially at the Byrd was a very neat experience, because it added more suspense to the already nerve racking movie. The theater is old, but the screen is still in really good shape and so is the inside of the theater. The seats are pretty comfortable and overall for an older theater it kind of grows on you, especially since it is cheap.
