Okay, it’s a cheesy title, but I was trying to come up with something catchy.
If you didn’t catch my meaning from the oh-so-witty title, I’m talking about the Byrd Theatre in Carytown. It is one of the landmarks that always comes up when people are either reminiscing about Richmond or telling newcomers where they should make a point of visiting.
I would like to point out a quote from one of his postings about my favorite event at the Byrd, and quite possibly my favorite event in Richmond each year:
…every spring the VCU French Film Festival takes over the Byrd for three
days. More than 16,000 tickets were sold for the 2003 series, which the
French government formally recognized as the largest French film
festival in the United States.
