This drive-in was also a fly-in, as it had its own landing strip in the 1960s.

NYozoner commented about Big Sky Drive-In on Dec 30, 2016 at 2:06 am

Both Film Daily Yearbook and International Motion Picture Almanac list a Skylite Drive-In, Delta, Colorado, from 1950 to 1970.

Big Sky Drive-In is not listed in any of these catalogs. Both Tru-Vu Drive-In and Skylite Drive-In are listed as the only drive-ins operating in Delta, Colorado, from 1950 to 1970. The Skylite Drive-In appears from 1950-70, while the Tru-Vu Drive-In appears from 1955-70.

HERE is a 1950 aerial photo depicting the Skylite Drive-In at the exact location of what is today known as the Big Sky Drive-In. It can therefore be concluded that the Big Sky Drive-In and the Skylite Drive-In are the same drive-in, and that at some point in its history the name was changed from Skylite to Big Sky.
