Can't beat the price, the atmosphere and the popcorn prices. Finally a place you can actually bring the family for some fun and not feel robbed.

Seeing the architecture is worth the trip. Movie admission is cheap. Don't miss the sessions during the weekends when the pipe organ is played.

This is a 2 dollar movie theater you must see and experience! The building and the service are great! Organ music is a plus! So much fun.

Glad to hear the Foundation has plans to ramp up fundraising for modernizing amenities (including the seats!) Love the GM who spoke to us.

I love the Byrd. Yeah, the seats are old and a little worn and definitely not stadium seating, but the atmosphere is incredible, as is the architecture and the Wurlitzer. Movie prices are $1.99 and popcorn prices are reasonable, so very conducive for a family, a date or an individual.

This theater is beautiful inside. It has movies just out of the regular theaters for just $1. It's an all cash snack bar with cheap prices. It is definitely something you should experience. Lots of beautiful history in this theater.

This place is great for seeing movies that have already been to the AMC's, Regal's etc. But for a $1.99 who cares. Go when the organist is playing it is a great experience. Hopefully, they will raise enough money to replace the seats... bring a cushion...

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to see a motion picture in a true "Movie Palace," the Byrd Theater is the place to go. It's a step back in time to when move theaters were elegant places that rival the most opulent Opera Houses. On Saturday night, they even start the show with a 15 minute organ... More

This is the closest you will ever feel to being in the Phantom of the Opera. I think that Byrd Theater may be the defining symbol of old Richmond. I probably go here every other week. It's a cheap date night location with a lot of character, and very close to a lot of incredible restaurants and ice cream shops.
