Here is a ca.1944 postcard photograph of the Wayne Theatre and the adjacent Greyhound bus station. From a 1951 view at Historic Aerials, I believe that the theater had to have been on the east side of Buckeye Street adjacent to the north side of the alley between Lincoln Highway and North Street.

The Greyhound office must have been in the small building now occupied by the dental office of Dr. Ronald Ostroski, which is at 133 N. Buckeye. The theater’s address was most likely 127, 129 or 131 N. Buckeye. The Wayne/Lyric II Theatre has been demolished.
