The Autism Center is in the building that used to house Rush’s Music Store. There was also another building next door that had a boating and marine store. The drive-in was behind these buildings with the marquee and entrance just north of the current Hardee’s. The Mini-Storage units are now located where the north side of the drive-in was.

This is now The Autism Center Of East Tennessee. Approx. address for this drive-in was 2890 Alcoa Highway. Although the center takes up most of the site, you can still make out some of the outline.
