Wayne is also home to the Anthony Wayne Theater! Named for General Anthony Wayne, the theatre was converted from an 1880's row home to a theater in 1928.  The Anthony Wayne 5 movie theater first opened its doors to the public in June of 1928. A one-screen theater at the time, the Anthony Wayne theater was an instant hit. Wayne, being on the edge of suburbs at the time of its first opening, found many new patrons, seeking out this beautifully constructed house for entertainment. At that time, the theater was owned and operated by a man named Harry Fried. Fried had experience in the movie business as he had run a movie theater in his past.
