Huffington Post picks Byrd Theater as a Virginia Must Do

Dixie Donuts gets a shout out as well.

Huffington Post Travel has posted a list of This Is The ONE Thing You Must Do In Each U.S. State and Byrd Theater gets the nod and Dixie Donuts gets a shout out. Oddly though the picture shows neither one so I include one of the Byrd courtesy their own website (photo by Daniel Marks). Huffington Post’s picture is below.

See a movie at The Byrd Theater in Carytown
Carytown is Richmond’s cutesy shopping district, and The Byrd is the big, glamorous old-time movie palace that’s been showing films since 1928– on Saturdays, you can still hear an organ performance before your movie. Tickets are $1.99, which means you have more than enough spare change for a french toast donut from Dixie Donuts.

  1. photography credits would be outstanding for any artist that creates an image that is used on the internet. Daniel Marks of shot the image of the Byrd Theater above.

  2. Daniel – Excellent photo of the Byrd. I agree that photography credits should be used. When I saw this yesterday, I looked for the credit and did not find it.

  3. Apologies for not giving credit where credit is due. I have fixed the issue and linked back to Daniel’s website both in the article and at the bottom of the article where we usually give photo credit. Again, sorry for the oversight on my part.

  4. We at the Byrd certainly believe in giving credit where credit is due, but I would like to point out that this picture is NOT from our website. I would be happy to provide pictures of the Byrd and of Dixie Donuts (I have some I took when they were putting up their giant doughnut sign) if you would like.
