SkyVue Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The SkyVue was the second drive in to open in Waterloo. It opened July 25, 1950 with Dan Dailey in “Give My Regards to Broadway”. It closed in the late-1980’s and was demolished. Nothing has been built on the property and you can still see part of the screen tower and the ticket booth on the propery.
