The NRHP registration form for the Central Fire Station in Sebring notes that its architect, William J. Heim, also designed the Sevon Drive In, as well as the indoor Florida and Circle Theatres in Sebring.

after messing with the photo above, I can identify it as the end of the triangle where Alt 27 and the small road behind the theater met.

It was located on Alt 27, but the little road that ran behind the theater may be 17. The photo you have above is a little building that was on that road. It was a small store once upon a time. It was one of Floyd enterprises theaters. I lived inside in the back in a mobile home believe it or not. We got our mail at the Sebring post office, but my sisters and I went to school in Avon Park.

That should be Old US 27. My mistake. I guess it could’ve been in Sebring. I’m not sure where the city limits begin and end.

My 1956 Motion picture Almanac has it located in Sebring.Flordia.Andy, it parked 264 cars and was owned by Carl Floyd which i bet was part of Floyd Theatres located all over Flordia.
