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. 

Byrd Theatre
