Nick, I think this theater is still standing. The property appraiser states that the complex was built in 1967 and shows no modifications to the main complex except for the construction of various outlots at the edge of the parking lot.
Here is my picture from November 2010.
It was at the northwest corner of Old Birmingham Highway and Cordova Cut-off Road.
It was at roughly 9496 US 40. You can see the faint remains of some of the ramps in the back of the lot.
This one was at about 1960 Filbert Highway (US 321). Oddly enough, it seems to have been incorporated into the neighboring cemetary.

Awesome, SiliconSam. I guess that means the Fort Rock was at my location.
Either the Auto or the Fort Rock was located east of town on US 21; the address was roughly 2875 Cherry Road. The outline is still there and it looks like it’s some sort of prefabricated building store. The projection booth might still be sitting out in the field.
Possibly. Where’d you find out that name? I got Apalachee from a slightly dubious list of Florida drive-ins. Whatever the case may be, this theater definitely did exist.

I contacted a long-time Macclenny resident who informed me that the Edray was located in what is now the Crockett Building, so the theater is still standing, just modified on the exterior. The theater was at about 5 W. Macclenny Avenue. This circa 1940 picture was found on the Baker County Historical Society website and shows a perspective of the block of buildings on the first block of Macclenny.
Here is a picture of the arcade building.
Here is a picture and article on the Pasco Theatre. Dade City really lost a treasure when they demolished this one.
Here is a picture from circa 1944. This was found on the Pasco County, Florida history website.
Their website has a few photographs.
Here is a picture from 1921.
Here is a picture from 1953.

It appears that the Alcazar and the also-listed Center were the same theater. It was also called the Roxy at one point. The Alcazar moved into a converted grain warehouse in 1926 and its final incarnation, the Center, closed in 1977.
A Palace Theatre opened up at 1019 3rd Avenue South in either 1925 or 1926. I’m not sure if the Palace later became the Roxy or if there really were two separate theaters located next to each other. You know how some of these old addresses can be…
It looks like the screen and projection booth are still standing.
Think anyone can find a new link to that 1948 picture? It’s hard to do a search for Boston, seeing as everything gets lost in the Boston, MA search results. I’m not too far from Boston, GA at the moment and would be glad to pay a visit if we can identify the theater building.
Address should be changed to roughly 311 W. Jackson Street and status should be Demolished.
