Welcome to City Lit Theater!

1020 W Bryn Mawr, Chicago, IL 60660


City Lit Theater is located on the second floor of the Edgewater Presbyterian Church at the corner of Bryn Mawr and Kenmore, right around the corner from where Lake Shore Drive starts at Hollywood and Sheridan.

City Lit Theater is wheelchair accesible. There is an elevator located next to the main stairs and a ramp entrance on the west side of the building.




We are a block and a half east of the Bryn Mawr Red Line stop.

**Red Line stations at Bryn Mawr, Thorndale, and Granville will be closed Friday, 10pm through Monday, 4am. Starting Jan. 24, 2020, likely running well into spring. During station closures, the CTA will operate a bus shuttle on Broadway making regular stops at Bryn Mawr, Thorndale, and Granville. 


The #36 Broadway and the #84 Peterson buses are one block east. We are one block west of the #147 Sheridan and #151 Sherdan buses. 

We allow people and businesses with underutilized parking to make it available to those needing a place to park. Our mission is to solve the parking challenge for owners, renters, and communities in a way that benefits them and ultimately the environment.
