THE MAJESTIC STORY
It’s been 81 years since the original Gay Theater opened in Wayne, and now we will have a movie theatre once again! Since the theatre closed in 2008, there has been something missing from downtown. We were missing a place to hang out, a place to go on a date, a place for kids to see their first movie…
What we were missing was a place to take part in a part of the American experience. There is nothing like the hush that falls through a crowded theater when the lights go down and the movie is about to begin. And now we won’t have to miss that anymore.
When the theatre closed, a group of determined people got together and decided that Wayne deserved to have a movie theater. Reggie Yates, Gary Van Meter, Jeff Morlok, Stephanie Liska, Jill Brodersen, and Todd Young, with help from the Wayne Area Economic Development Institute, set about raising the money to buy the building and revitalize and reopen the theater. Surely there was a way to reopen this theatre? And surely there was a way to bring in the Wayne Community Theatre Group, who needed a stage when the theatre happened to have a spare one? Soon they had momentum and the project was off.
