The most unique part of the Byrd is the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ--one of only two pipe organs played on a regularly scheduled basis in America (the other being the one at Radio City Music Hall). Bring your date by on a Saturday night, before the 7:15 or 9:30 shows, and watch organist Bob Gulledge work his magic. It's a little kitschy, a little corny--but also a real slice of Americana.
The Byrd offers second-run movies for the unbelievable price of $1.99 each. What's even more unbelievable is that they were just 99 cents until a few years ago. The theater is owned by a non-profit foundation which is currently raising funds to help preserve the Byrd for future generations. When you visit it, you'll see why.
