Located in Midtown in the Orange Mound neighborhood of Memphis. The Sky-Vue Drive-In opened in June 1949, and was built and operated by Dave Lebovitz and his brother Abner Lebovitz. It had a capacity for 750 cars, and apparently there was a heavy walk-in patronage, as 700 seats were provided in front of the screen. There was concession stand in the base of the screen, as well as one in the centre of the lot. Another facility was a playground.
Closed in 1970. The Sky-Vue Drive-In was actually an ‘in-town’ drive-in. Much of the neighbourhood where it was located was developed before 1949. At the edge of a ‘colored’ neighbourhood, it was built for white patrons.
