The State Theater was first operated by the Shafers in 1946 for Wayne Amusements. It was just a couple of yards away from the Wayne Theatre in which it was meant to replace.
The State Wayne was originally a single screen theater, later carved in 4 screens, when National Amusements operated the theater.
When the city of Wayne took over the theater, they took out the 2 existing storefronts and filled them in for restrooms.
As part of the agreement when the city took over the State Wayne from National Amusements, they could not show first run movies, only sub-run. The theater also has yearly plays put on.
By 2012 it was operated by Phoenix Theatres.
