Sky High Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Sky High Drive-In was opened prior to 1950. It was located at the intersections of US Route 322 and PA Route 257 in Cranberry, PA. In 1980, it was torn down to make way for the Cranberry Mall.

It was nothing elaborate. Unlike the Auto Drive-In, which was concrete, the Sky High was a metal frame covered with sheet metal on one side for a screen.

One of the people involved in the demolition of it told me it took two guys, one on each side to knock the bracing loose and let the screen fall over. The Carmike Cinemas at the Cranberry Mall sits roughly where the Sky High’s parking lot was.

In 1958 the drive-in was operated by the Kayton Amusement company.
