Mohawk Theater

The Wayne Theater opened in the early-1940’s (it is listed as open in 1941 with 300 seats). It was destroyed by fire in 1947. It was rebuilt, reopening on November 20, 1951 as the Mohawk Theater, with a seating capacity for 499. It was designed by architect Jack K. Vogel. The Mowhawk Theater was closed by the early-1970’s. Since 1971 the building has been used as a restaurant.

This article dated June 9, 2012, says that Ralph Bevington and Harry Osborne bought the Roxy Theatre in Minerva, Ohio, in the mid-1960s and renamed it the Mohawk, installing in it all the equipment from their house of that name in Waynesburg, including the marquee.

Another source I found but lost track of said that the Mohawk in Waynesburg was converted into Cibo’s Restaurant in 1971. That means the restaurant has now occupied the building about three times as long as the theater did.
