Some sources indicate that it also operated under the name Skyline Drive-In.

It was later operated by Dave Lebovitz along with three indoor and two other drive-in theatres. All served the “colored” community.
Park Avenue has no highway number although it is an important thorofare. It begins at a fork from Lamar Ave. and veers in another direction. The fork is near South Parkway and Park Avenue stretches from midtown Memphis to the border of Germantown at which time it changes its name to Poplar Pike and continues east for a long way thereafter.

The original operator at opening was H.H. Roth of the Sky-Vue Theatre Corp. Hoping someone local will know which ‘main highway’ it was located on.

Do you know about where this was located? (Which “main highway” ?)

Ken, I have Harold Roth owning this Drive-in in the late fifties.
