The Sky-Hi Drive-In was located at 3110 (old) Highway 63. With a capacity of 700 cars and a playground in front of the 105'x 50' screen, the fare ranged from westerns to horror to sci-fi.

Opened in 1965 and closed in 1985 it was demolished around 1990. It featured an enormous air conditioned snack bar.

Once again, Google Maps lies. The map at the upper right is incorrect. Their map for the Broadway Drive-In Theater on West Broadway in Columbia was incorrect as well. I have adjusted the street level views for this and the Broadway Drive-In. This one now correctly shows the old entrance to the Sky-Hi. The one lane in/one lane out entrance is used by the landscaping and garden center that occupies the space where the theater was located. The sign shown in the photo by lostmemory (earlier comment above), was located basically where the landscape company sign is shown on Google street level view-right between the two lanes. I was a student at Mizzou in the early 80s and spent many a weekend night here with some good friends and good (smuggled in) beer!
