This dazzling movie palace was built in the early 20th century. Italian marble and elegantly painted murals fill the interior. A balcony and theater boxes overlook the auditorium below and on Saturday evenings, a Wurlitzer organ, which once accompanied silent movies, is played. The audience can sing along; the words are displayed on the screen. The staff dresses in 1920s clothing. Second-run movies are shown here daily. The Byrd also features Saturday midnight movies for really low prices. The Byrd also hosts special movie events like a Halloween screening of Nosferatu with a live band accompanying the silent film.
