What’s a bit of mystery concerning the “Sky Harbor” sign in the exact style and shade of blue, and looks to be the same age as the existing “Sky Drive-In Theater” sign. The Sky Harbor sign has been mounted in front of a real estate company on Jaurez Lane just south of Hwy. 62 as you head into the Sky Harbor residential area. There is a link between these two signs which could be simply that the Sky Harbor sign was designed by the same sign company at the request of the original developer of Sky Harbor which I believe was in the late 70’s. Or, was there once another drive-in on the site of Sky Harbor?

The SKY Drive-In opened in 1958.

The address that is listed is the current address. Back in the day other address was right. I would keep it listed at 7028 Theatre Road. There would be less confusion in the location.

The address above is incorrect. That’s the address given for the swap meet present day. That road did not exist when the theater operated.

The correct address would be 57222 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley, CA 92284.

This is the entrance when the Drive-in was open. It’s runs through the Desert Hills shopping center which didn’t exist this theater opened. Part of this road is the main entrance to the center.

Please update.

I was told by the owners that they closed the theatre when a severe wind storm destroyed the screen.

The Sky was featured in the 1985 movie “American Drive-In!”
