Opened in 1912, the Bryn Mawr Theatre is in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. It was just steps away from the Bryn Mawr Avenue "El" stop, so it was located in an area which received heavy foot (and also auto) traffic. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer 2 manual 6 ranks model D organ.
Renamed the New Bryn Mawr Theatre on April 19, 1930. In the early-1980’s it was renamed Gar Wah Theatre, screening Chinese and mainstream Hollywood films. It operated until closing around 1988.
The former theatre served as retail and storage use for many years. It was vacant, available for lease in fall of 2016.
