The Forum IV was located in the strip mall next to Merle Hay May. It was next to Felix & Oscars Pub. I believe it closed in the early-1990’s and has since been turned in retail space. Currently it is a Hobby Lobby.

Polk County tax records show the building (4080 Merle Hay Road) as being built in 1973 and remodeled in 1999 (must have been when it was converted to present retail space).

Officially opened in December 1974, this theatre was known and advertised as the “Forum IV” (note Roman numerals).

I bet “JAWS” had a long Run.
