Byrd Theatre Foundation announces "Journey to the Seats," a means to a Film Center

On Wednesday, June 18, the Byrd Theatre Foundation announced its "Journey to the Seats" campaign, a full restoration plan for the Byrd Theatre to be completed in the next three years.  

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The foundation has already completed several projects including replacing the boiler, purchasing a new digital server and roof repairs.

In an effort to build transparency with Richmonders in the wake of declining a gift of temporary seats from Cannes, the foundation has opened its drafted long term restoration plan to the public.

It is available as a working, viewable document for anyone to see. Additionally, the foundation intends to launch a blog in the coming weeks to help track the restoration project's progress.
