Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Skyline Drive-In was open in the early-1950’s and parked 300 cars. Initially operated by W.E. Thrush, then Stellings-Gossett Theatres followed by Stewart and Everett. The drive-in closed in 1985.

Any additional information on the Skyline Drive-In would be appreciated.

2395 Carolina Beach Rd, Wilmington, NC 28401 ‎

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which was across Carolina Beach Road from the Star Way Drive-In, also in Wilmington.

There is a gas station where the entrance used to be, and the location of the drive-in is now a medical complex with a large drainage pond.

Odd? Was this Drive-In theater open at the same time Starway Drive-In was open? Seems to me the competition would have hurt the two theaters. According to a neighbor who went to both each weekend I understand they did “very” well in the early sixties but suffered badly starting in the seventies. Still,they were almost across the street from each other. How could they survive on those Crown International “B” movies they showed? Doesn’t make sense building theaters so close to each other!
