Zooming in on Google street view of the Wayne Theatre it looks like the address is 30 N. Main Street. The theater has no web site, but there is a Facebook page that hasn’t been updated since 2019. Prior to that, there were some years with several events at the house, most of them live performances. The theater is sponsored by the Monticello Banking Company, whose offices occupy about half of the block the theater is on. The bank uses the address 50 N. Main.

Many capsule movie reviews by A. E. Christian, then proprietor of the Wayne Theatre, were published in Motion Picture Herald in the period 1935-1937.
