Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

| Street View

Opened by Westco Theatres around 1950. Car capacity was listed at 200 cars. The Skyline Drive-In screen faced I-80 which gave a great view of the movie from those passing by. The drive-in had two marquees angled so that both faced the freeway also.

The drive-in was last operated by Commonwealth Theatres and closed in the mid-1980’s. The property is now home to Skyline Self Storage.

Any further information on this drive-in would be appreciated.

On the Map the Drive-In is West of the Red Dot. You can plainly see the Skyline Self Storage. The self storage is using the same marquee the drive-in used.

Commonwealth Theaters, Inc. of Kansas City, Mo., Richard H. Orear, President, had over 110 theaters in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming.

More info and photos are always welcome.
