In looking at the pictures on the website it looks like it was closed for awhile!
Uploaded aerial from 1966. It looks like the curved cinema-scope screen was mounted in front of the flat screen.
Uploaded 1952 aerial map. The drive-in was gone in 1962. Also, the design of the screen tower must have been a common one. I have see other screen towers in Ohio that were built just like it.
Here we go!!!
The plans called for a twin. But it was never finished. I almost had the owners ready to finish it, but unfortunately, the city of Fayetteville added so many restrictions to getting a permit. That the cost became way too much.
The ramps were already built. We only needed projection equipment and a screen. The Roads were there as well, but the City of Fayetteville wanted us to Build a lake to retain water, to dig out the culverts under 112, that they just had the car lot replace with a double culvert and for us to install 1 very large culvert. We were to put a sidewalk from Nelms to the Glass company, to put in an irrigation system and water line and plant trees all across the HWY 112 frontage, So that kind of killed it as ever being possible.
I emailed them….hopefully we will have an answer. I don’t have history on the drive-in, maybe it opened has a twin?

In looking at an aerial it used to a twin at one time.
The correct address is:
8691 Dayton-Cincinnati PikeMiamisburg, OH 45342
It could be reopened again….You could show movies and still have the flea market.
Here is the story..The Shelby Drive-In and Skyline were open at the same time. When the Shelby closed the Skyline moved to the Shelby location. This is not original location of the Skyline DI.
Uploaded new pictures.
This is the correct address for the Skyway. For some reason Goggle maps does not map to the correct location. It does map correctly using Bing’s maps.
I believe this is from 1957
Address is…2516 E. State Road 14 Rochester,IN 46975
Video from 1997
It has been sold and going to be reopened
Uploaded aerial from 1958. It looks like it was closed before 1965.
The address is…1140 West Helm Street, Brookfield, MO 64628
I think in closed in 1957.
Address…Big Basin Hwy and Moon Dr Boulder Creek, CA 95006
Here is an aerial for it from 1966…It was located at 541 Buffalo-West Springs Highway, Union, SC 29379. I found it when I researched the Spartanburg, SC drive-ins. It did some advertising in Spartanburg paper.
