Bryn Mawr Film Institute is located on Lancaster Avenue at the center of the charming village of Bryn Mawr, ten miles west of Philadelphia. Convenient to public transportation, the theater is two blocks from the Paoli/Thorndale Route Septa Regional Rail Station, five blocks from the R100 Norristown High Speed Line, and on the Rt. 105 and Rt. 106 bus lines, all of which have a Bryn Mawr stop. BMFI is surrounded by dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance of the theater. We encourage you to explore all that Bryn Mawr has to offer during your visit!
