(After 1951 - 2000)

The Art City Drive-In closed on 4 September 2000[1] after developers purchased the property with plans to build homes and retail stores on the site.

Wesley Webb, the last owner of the theater, bought the drive-in as an investment.  When land prices suffered in the 1980s, he continued to show movies.[2]

Speakers from the Art City Drive-In were sold on eBay with the description, "Vintage Drive-In Movie Speaker Manufactured by Reed.  This speaker is original and operational on September 4, 2000 at the Art City Drive-In in Springville, Utah. This was the last day the drive in operated. The Speaker has Art City DI Theatre engraved on the face. "[1]

The screen, projection building, and ticket booth of the Art City Drive-In were demolished by October 2002.[1]  By June 2005, two or three new buildings had been built along the front of the site, with only a few rows of drive-in parking remaining at the back of the lot.
