The Byrd was part of the “Neighborhood of Virginia” chain. It had the classic Neighborhood E-7 & Peerless magnarc booth.

I lived across from the Byrd Theater in the early 1970’s. By then, the “family” clientelle vanished when it became a haven for soft core porn. I remember that the big hit of its later years was a 3-D bomb “The Stewardesses.”
