Richmond, VA (WTVR) – Some Richmonders will be able to check out Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated “Lincoln” movie later this week.

Since the movie was filmed mostly in Richmond and Petersburg, special early screenings of the film are being held in both cities on Thursday, one of which will take place at the Byrd Theater.

Both screenings are invitation only.

The movie, which stars Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field, premieres in theaters nationwide on November 16th.
