Waynesboro Theatre to get a Facelift

The Waynesboro Theatre was built in 1966. It was built on the site of the former Arcade Theatre. At one time this was a 300-seat Jerry Lewis Cinema.

Lou Radakovich purchased the Waynesboro Theatre in 1976 and operated it until closure on November 30, 2014. It was reopened November 20, 2015 with 200 seats.

The Waynesboro Theatre closed showed its final movie on 11/30/14. The final performance was “Big Hero 6”. Here is an article about the owner and the theatre. http://www.therecordherald.com/article/20141216/News/141219909. I worked there part time for the last 35 years. My first day on the job there was Christmas day of 1979. It wasn’t fancy, no stereo sound, no 3D. Good friendly owners with really decent movie and concession prices. It will be missed.

Here is a scan of the pass to the Red Carpet Premiere of the “new” Waynesboro Theatre. Also is a photo from the Premiere. The theatre has state of the art sound and digital projection. All new seating and concession area. Completely renovated restrooms. The new operators are High Rock which also operate the Leitersburg Cinemas in Hagerstown MD.

The “New” Waynesboro Theatre seats 200. The theatre has wide leather seats with a center arm rest that can be lifted up for a more intimate seating for two. The distance between each row of seats was increased from the previous seating. There is a photo of the new seats that also show the old (red) seats in the background.
