The Side of the screen that faced York Road had a neon star and crescent moon. I worked there at the concession stand in the summer of ‘64.
Elm Skate where Tony Tahlman played a killer organ was across the street.

This comment posted about the Sky-Hi in Addison, IL refers the the Sky-Hi in Elmhurst:
“The Jelmek family pioneered in the drive-in theater business when they built the original Ski Hi Drive-In theater in Elmhurst 20 years ago. The original theater was taken by the state for highway purposes.

Going to the Sky-Hi was such a treat. We went in our pajamas and I remember it being so beautiful. Of course when you’re a kid…

Above address does not map properly. Use 385 East Roosevelt Road, now in Oak Brook, IL 60181 as this is approx. where the drive-in was located.
