By now, you’ve probably heard about the changes at the Byrd Theatre. I sat down with Gibson Worsham, President of the Byrd Theatre Foundation, for an in-depth look at what’s changed and what’s coming.

 

BTW, Gibson is an architect, but he’s also a blogger (Urban Scale Richmond), where he’s profiled some of Richmond’s historical theatres.

  1. A fine, informative presentation, Jerry. Thank you. I’d also like to know if there’s a plan to restore the original marquee, or replace the current one with something more compatible with the historic facade.

    • Restoring the original BYRD blade sign out front and the neon framed marquee from the 30’s has always been part of the plan.

  2. PS Will the historic anti-litter announcement continue to run?

    • I have no idea…haven’t been to a regular movie there in many years.

    • The litter trailer is a treasured part of the Byrd’s history….which is why it was converted to digital when we switched formats….it’s not going anywhere!
