Old theatre from the 1930's (I think) with lots of original interior. Very charming and affordable!

Such an incredible piece of history. $1.99 for a previously released movie. Concessions are decently priced and I would be willing to be it's the most beautiful place to see a movie. The seats are in terrible repair but it's somewhat enjoyable to scout out seats that don't have springs popping out of them. After using the bathrooms you will likely wish you could find another bathroom to wash your hands.

We love the Byrd! $2 movies and delicious popcorn! Perfect for a date night or family outing. If you go on a Friday or Saturday, they play the huge pipe organ before the movie.

Super fun place to go when you are on a budget. They are in the process of renovating so it gets better every time we go! Living social sometimes has deals where you get 2 drinks, popcorn and 2 tickets for only $7.00!

Classic Richmond. Good deals on older movies. Lots of speakers and events throughout the year. Seats are a bit uncomfortable.

A 1920s theatre with original chandelier where you can watch current movies for 1.99. The BEST date night.

Lovely old theatre built in 1928 with artistic flare. The ceiling is beautifully painted with eleven Czechoslovakian Crystal Chandeliers, and a piano that rises out of the stage during performances. They throw events, mid night cult movies, and even do a New Years Eve Ball Drop off the rooftop. They always show great movies at $1.99 per person and even cheaper popcorn and drinks! How the movie experience should be. A Richmond Classic.
