  • The Byrd's new 4K projector, a Barco DP4K-32B Digital Cinema Projector, will allow the historic theatre to show films with much clearer and brighter picture.

The Byrd Theatre has found its new projector.

The Byrd Theatre Foundation announced the purchase of a new Barco DP4K-32B Digital Cinema Projector, which is expected to be installed next week.

“The new 4K projector will provide a dramatically enhanced cinematic experience to the already unique treasure that is the Byrd Theatre,” said Gibson Worsham, president of the Byrd Theatre Foundation’s board of directors, in a release.

Of course, judging by their comments, what Richmonders are really watching is the "Journey to the Seats" campaign, which Style announced in this 2014 cover story.

Reached by e-mail, vice president of the board Grant Mizell says:

"As of May, we (the Board) have adopted a Strategic Plan for repositioning the theatre for the future. This will likely revise our current Journey to the Seats campaign, in a positive direction for ensuring the building and the business are sound, sustainable, and growing a community of supporters that take full advantage of the Byrd Theatre’s unique qualities."

Stay tuned for further coverage of any updates in Style.
