Skyline Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Set in East Tennessee, this Morristown city drive-in parked 189 cars making it that city’s smallest drive-in. The Skyline Drive-In was owned by G.D. Baker, and opened prior to 1950. By 1955, it had expanded to a capacity for 325 cars and A.E. Rook had joined G.D. Baker as operators.

There was a drive-in located at about 3932 US 11E East, give or take a few lots. There doesn’t appear to be any trace of this theater. There was another drive-in at or around 2296 US 11E West. This area is all commercial sprawl now.

Right where the T shaped driveway is now, used to be the place you’re talking about.

However, the name of the town needs to be changed to Morristown. Does anyone check maps before submitting theaters?

Try this link instead, the other link pops up an info box and moves you away from the location.

3630 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy is the closest spot.

Just type the town and state into Google and see if it even maps out. If not, then the town no longer exists or it’s misspelled, which is more likely. And an incorrect ZIP code can throw things off too.
