Richmond's Byrd Theater, Richmond
Located in the heart of the artsy Carytown district of Richmond, there is a grand ole theater called the "Byrd", named for William Byrd I and II. Its name around Richmond is "Richmond's Movie Place", and has been in business since 1928. Its claim to fame is to be the first in Virginia to have a sound system, which was a big deal back then. Although during our walking tour, we did not get a chance to go inside, I understand the inside is just as stunning as the outside in terms of history.
The Byrd also offers a pretty unique price, of $1.99/person, which is far lower than the modern movie theaters.
