A K-Mart was built on the site. Now the building is used as a library.

This theatre served as Eastern Federal’s District Office for many years, until the late 1970’s when they sold the land to K-Mart to build a super center on the same footprint. The University Drive-In was the subject of a Court Case that went to the Supreme Court: .Erznoznik v. City of Jacksonville, 422 U.S. 205 (1975), is a United States Supreme Court.

Is it near a university?

Davidcoppock, it was down the street from Jacksonville University, which also happened to be the street name, University Blvd., which both the Drive-In and Jacksonville University used as their address.

This was probably a short-lived drive-in. The theater was built sometime in the mid-1960s.
