I found two pics in my phone from 2014. Interior elements leaving being hauled away on a truck. Not the best pics, but both are in the Photos section.

DavidZornig commented about Bryn Mawr Theatre on Jul 7, 2017 at 11:41 am

I was finally able to get a halfway decent shot of the Bryn Mawr ghost signs on the South & East elevations of the building from the train. The East elevation is more legible, as there is a reflection of the train windows on the other one. I never noticed the one on the East elevation before, but it came out better than my intended one. Photo in the Photo’s section.

Very cool. If you could post pics of those areas it would be a great addition to the Photo’s Section.

Status should be changed to “Demolished”.
It was torn down this week.

vindanpar, CC’s above comment has been removed, but it is still present under the photo. I stated above that it was “on stage”, but did not do so on the photo description. The notification is what alerted members to the addition of the photo, so it is moot.

You may already know, or find it interesting that the late Oliver Reed was within a sliver of becoming Bond when George Lazenby got the role. But the Broccoli family didn’t feel they had the time or resources to combat Reed’s already growing public drinking image.
