THS member JIM JOHNSON tells us that the prestigious new film by Steven Spielberg had its southern premiere in the beautiful Byrd Theatre in Richmond, VA.
Jim writes: Attached is an article which appeared in the Fredericksburg Free Lance Star on November 11th regarding the “Lincoln” premiere at Richmond’s Byrd Theatre. The article has a fantastic photo of the Byrd’s auditorium with attendees listening to a welcome speech by Virginia’s Governor. This article further reveals the impact of filming in the Richmond and Tri-City area. I thought the photo might give individuals who have never been inside the Byrd a peek of what this grand movie palace looks like.
