The Byrd Theatre Temporarily Closes due to COVID-19

The Byrd Theatre Temporarily Closes due to COVID-19

Out of deep care and concern for our dedicated  staff and our wonderful Byrd community, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all films and special events effective Saturday, March 14th 8am 

This is a precautionary and voluntary measure as we currently have no known cases of novel coronavirus COVID-19 associated with the Byrd Theatre. 

Given the recommendations from the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control about social distancing, we believe this is the most responsible and prudent action to protect the well-being of our community and staff. 

The Byrd Theatre will still be accepting financial donations. Public support is especially appreciated during this time and will help the Byrd to reopen with minimal disruption as soon as it is acceptable to do so. 

All previously purchased tickets for cancelled screenings will be refunded.

We appreciate your support in this unprecedented time and will share our plans as we re-evaluate.

Be Well & Wash Your Hands,

The Byrd Theatre

Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

Dear Byrd Theatre guests, 

We are continuing to actively monitor the VDH and CDC and listen to the Governor, the Mayor and other officials in the developing impact of COVID-19 in our community. In an effort to protect you, our guests, and allow you to practice social distancing, we are capping our attendance for our shows at 175 people moving forward, this is 25% of our seating capacity in our lower auditorium. 

We hope this will provide an escape to the movies you want, while allowing you the ability to practice the recommended social distancing space needed. Please remember, if you are sick, or have symptoms to stay home for the safety of all of our community. 

We continue with increased frequency of cleaning common areas and sanitizing high touch surfaces, including spraying and wiping seats, between screenings. Our staff has increased hand washing and using gloves at the box office. You’ll also see we are no longer tearing tickets to avoid hand to hand contact. 

We’ve reminded staff to follow standard precautions, including frequent hand washing, and to stay home if they feel ill. We also request patrons do the same by not coming to the theatre if you have a fever or feel ill or are experiencing symptoms. 

We will continue to monitor and follow guidance from the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as local and state authorities. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Aida

Aida

War. Egypt versus Ethiopia in the days of the pharaohs. She is a princess and he a soldier; if only they were on the same side…

Verdi’s epic masterpiece is the spectacle of opera on the grandest scale, yet focuses on the most basic human emotion-love.

Sung in Italian with English Supertitles.
