For years, downtown Wayne’s movie theater has been slugging it out with the big boys: the Regals, the AMCs, the Movie Taverns, and, to a lesser degree, the Bryn Mawr Film Institute.
Slugging it out and, er, losing.
But the tide may turn yet.
Because dear old Anthony Wayne – built in 1928 and sagging with age – is making his last stand.
The theater’s operator, Reel Cinemas, just launched a “Save the Anthony Wayne” campaign and the stakes couldn’t be higher: Raise $2 million to modernize, compete and fill the seats.
Or raise the white flag and go dark for good.
Don’t think it can’t happen.
