    The seats leave a little to be desired, but for $1.99 (there's a cup of pennies at the box office) it's a steal for second-run films. Enjoy the pre-movie Wurlitzer organ on Friday & Saturday nights.

    Fun Sat sing-along w/Christmas music.Too bad people around us & staff in the lobby continued to talk during the movie. If you need to check your phone, at least have the courtesy to step outside.

    We love the historical atmosphere and one-of-a-kind personality that The Byrd offers - It takes us back to simpler times! Big fans!

    Cheap tickets and a special show on Saturdays with the beloved organ player and self playing harp! A must visit for locals and tourists alike ☺️

    It's a blast from the past. Enjoyed it very much. Will be back for sure. Saw the Incredible Mr. Limped, with Don Knots

    Bring cash, its all they accept. Movies are super cheap and fairly recent. Snacks & beverages are expensive, as always at any cinema.

    $2 and equally cheap concessions. A must-do for anyone in RVA (if only just once). Some great midnight features too!

    A must-visit spot, especially when friends and family are visiting from out of town :)

    The seats are dreadful and if you stand too long in the aisle your shoes may permanently stick to the floor. The rest of the place is awesome.

    A must stop for anyone who'd like to see a movie in a early 1900's style theater.

    Sweet talk the staff into letting you go up to the balcony where the seats are much more comfortable. Go on Saturday to see Bob Gulledge playing the Mighty Wurlitzer which is worth the $1.99 by itself Read more

    If you have a living social deal, you must stand in two lines. One line to redeem deal and another line to enter theater. Pack your patience & expect to wait awhile.

    Price increased for the first time in 20 years from $2 to $4. Still the best movie value in RVA!

    Great place to see Oscar worthy movies for only $2. However, I gotta warn you that the seats may be uncomfortable.

    This theatre is BEAUTIFUL! But as we left the manager yelled obscenities at my boyfriend who tried to take a picture of the beautiful space. Not a good experience!

    Seats are falling apart and somewhat uncomfortable; watch out for loose springs, sticky spots on the floor and suspicious stains in the seat

    Don't bring your screaming babies to an adult movie. Get a babysitter- they should be in bed anyway.

    Check your seat before you sit down. Ripped my jeans on a seat with a spring sticking out last Sunday at the VaIFF...
