The first movie theater in Jacksonville with more than four screens, the Cinema 6 was opened by Stewart & Everett in 1985. The Cinema 6 was nearly identical in design to the Havelock Cinema 4 (now Carmike Cinema 6 in Havelock) and was one of the last theaters built by Stewart & Everett.

Carmike acquired this theater in 1986 as part of its takeover of S&E. The Iwo Jima Drive-In and Cinema Drive-In closed around the same time as the Cinema 6 opened, leaving Jacksonville without either a downtown theater or a drive-in.

Cinema 6 was Jacksonville’s largest, highest-grade multiplex until 1990 when the Carmike Cinema 7 opened; it remained a first-run house until closing in 2003 (along with the Carmike 7 and second-run Brynn Marr 3). This theater has since been demolished and replaced by a Home Depot.

Correction to above post: Cinema 6 replaced the Iwo Jima Theatre (downtown) and the Cinema Drive-In, not the Iwo Jima Drive-In (no drive-in in Jacksonville to my knowledge was called Iwo Jima).
