This theater, built for the Schoenstadt circuit as the Parthenon in the western Chicago suburb of Berwyn, opened in 1928. It sat over 1,600 and contained a 4/16 Barton organ.
In 1930, it was renamed the Berwyn Theatre, and its management was taken over by Balaban & Katz. The Berwyn Theatre was re-modeled by architect William L. Pereira in 1936.
The Berwyn continued to operate for another half century. After sitting vacant for several years, the theater was heavily damaged in a blaze in 1990 and demolished afterwards.
