A Queer Film Series Celebrating the LGBTQ+ Community

Welcome to the Byrd Theatre, Virginia's Grand Motion Picture Palace, built in 1928, celebrating 90 years of exceptional cinematic experiences.

The Byrd Theatre Foundation, the owner of the Byrd, was established in 2001 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Its mission is to expand the big screen experience, celebrate the art of cinema and preserve Virginia’s grand motion picture palace, with a vision to elevate the Byrd’s landmark position among American theaters as a center for film that continues to provide the broadest possible public access to exceptional cinematic experiences.

Introducing the Reinhart Auditorium

In May 2019, the Reinhart family provided a $500,000 gift to the Byrd Theatre Foundation—the largest gift in the Foundation’s history. The gift will be used to reduce the mortgage on the Theatre, to establish an opportunity fund to develop more mission-based programming, and to expand access, expand audiences and increase staff over time – all part of Phase Two initiatives underway. Read more about this exciting announcement!

Donation Matching Challenge

To launch Phase Two, The Mary Morton Parsons Foundation has awarded a $250,000 Challenge Grant to raise new or increased contributions and pledges across the needs of the organization. Please consider participating with an outright gift or a multi-year pledge. Make a donation today.
