Opened by Griffith Theatres on July 3, 1948 with Clark Gable in “Call of the Wild”. It had a capacity of 475 cars and the Skyway Drive-In was rather large for a town the size of Seminole. Styling was of sleek Streamline Moderne style. After dark there were accent lights hidden within well designed landscaping. As an added bonus, complimentary windshield washes were provided upon entering the main drive.
By 1955 it was operated by Video Independent Theaters Inc.

Roadside Oklahoma photos are now on the photos tab of this page.
The Drive-In is located NW of Seminole on HWY 270 just south of the Ew120 Road. https://goo.gl/maps/eDLE3
You can still see the ramps and foundations for the screen, projector & concession stands.
very nice photos
Looks like the Skyway opened in the summer of 1948, a little before this July 17 note in BoxOffice: “Griffith’s Starlite Drive-In at Shawnee and the Skyway Drive-In at Seminole opened recently.”
A closer address is OK-3E & Ew120 Road, Seminole, OK.
The drive-in is just south of the intersection on the east side of the highway.
