During the 1970’s and by the 1980’s Goldsboro had two Downtown moviehouses: The Paramount and The Center. The Paramount closed in 1986(as a twin theatre) and the Center closed in 1984,but reopened as the Variety Theatre as a discount second-run moviehouse before it closed for good by 1989.

The Wayne Theatre was known as the Center in the 1970s, closed in the early 1980s and reopened as the Variety Theatre around 1985, closing for good by 1989.

This house was called the Wayne Theatre by 1939, the year Ralph Harold Ward became its manager, according to his obituary, published in 2008.

This house should have the aka Wayne Theatre. We currently list the Acme Theatre as the Wayne Theatre, but it probably never was.
