Love this place, but seating is rough. Anyone of average size, will squirm the whole movie, with cramped leg room,. Floors are sticky, seats need cleaned. But for 1.99, you can't beat it. Popcorn also old, but then again its not an 8.00 bag. Has...More

Byrd Theater is great for a date night if your trying to keep things on the cheap. The theater is very cool but the seat hurt and it always seems a little dirty. I would give it a go if you havnt been.

I had no idea what was inside when I walked in to see a movie. I thought we had razed all the fancy old movie houses. Who cares what movie is playing--just look at your surroundings. I left a donation on the way out to...More

The good parts: the architecture, the Saturday night organ playing before the movies, the cheap movies. The not so good parts: the bathrooms badly need renovation and the seats need to be replaced. A non profit foundation owns the Byrd and is trying to get...More

What a great place to go and see a cheap movie. They recently have had specials where you get 2 tickets to the movie, a large popcorn and 2 medium sodas, all for $7. Where can you beat a deal like that. The lines are...More

Not the most comfortable theater BUT not to be missed, especialy if you can get there on a Friday or Saturday night when the organ player is there (call ahead to make sure); what a treat! The movies are on their way out of town...More

So few places are left in America like the Byrd. Where else can you go to movies for less than $5. Complete with the amazing architecture of the old grand movie palaces of the 1920's and 30's. If you can -do not miss the Saturday...More

This is one of the last great movie palaces and takes you back in time. It's somewhat run down now but it takes little imagination to visualize past grandeur. The seats are somewhat uncomfortable but you don't care. The experience is uplifting and reminds you...More

So you've seen a movie recently and you didn't quite get the full picture the first time, or you had to visit the necessary at a crucial, plot turning moment. You don't want to hash out another 12 bucks to see it again, and you'll...More

I love this theater. I take my kids every chance I get. It's a bit shabby, a tad over worn in but, I wouldn't change a thing. You just don't find theaters like this anymore. It takes you back in time to an era when...More
