This should say closed, demolished, 1 screen, 600 cars.
The Cinema was Jacksonville’s last standing drive-in that closed in 1985.

Uploaded a photo of all that remains of the Drive – In, the framework of the pylon, from the Jacksonville, NC Theaters – site.

This was Jacksonville’s last standing drive-in theater. When it closed in 1985, all other drive-ins in Jacksonville, including the South 17 Twin on Wilmington Highway/US 17 South (non-porn) and Starlite (most likely the XXX drive-in just north of the South 17 Twin), had been demolished. The Cinema Drive-In has since been demolished as well.
