The first phase of a large effort to replace the aging seating at the historic Byrd Theatre in Carytown is finally complete. The process, which we’ve covered extensively, began in July and is still ongoing.

To celebrate the new center section seating going in–the first seat updates in 90 years–the Byrd is hosting a public ribbon cutting and dedication this evening, Friday, October 6th, at 6:45 PM.

The ribbon cutting will take place outside the theatre on the sidewalk at 2908 W. Cary Street, and all are welcome.
As the seating replacement efforts continue, The Byrd is still offering the chance to name a seat, complete with individual or business names, for $25 a pop. You can learn more here.

Following the ceremony, the theatre will host a showing of Spiderman: Homecoming at 7:15. Tickets are $4.
