Note that the Cinema Treasures entry for the closed Madawaska Drive-In is under Upper Frenchville here.

Multiple sources say the Skylite opened in 1973, owned from its beginning by the Pelletier family, currently by Donna and Gary Pelletier. Here are my IMPA listings since then:

1972-76: not listed.

1978-82: Skylit, Pelletier, 395.

1984-88: Skylite, R. Pelletier.

Above address is incorrect. Approx. location is in the 1100 block of 11th Ave. Use 11th Ave & Dionne St. to map.

Google doesn’t recognize the address for some reason.

I think it was owned by Emile Michand in 1956.

Google Map is off about 1/3 mile. The Drive-In is South across from Dionne Drive.

Open ~1973? Can you verify the exact date?

Madawaska is the “most Northeastern town in America”.

More info and photos aways welcome.
