"The Wayne Theatre brought high-quality entertainment in a handsome and comfortable setting to several generations of Waynesborians. Through the Depression and wartime, the Theatre provided welcome relief from stressful times. I am pleased the Wayne Theatre Alliance is dedicated to giving new life to this historic landmark and continuing its happy tradition for the citizens of Waynesboro." ~ Calder Loth, Senior Architectural Historian, Virginia Department of Historic Resources
