The Skyline Drive-In opened around 1950 and was opened by C. Dennis and J.C Broggi. In 1955 McLendon Theatres from Union Springs, Alabama, took over the operation. It had a car capacity of 200 cars. In 1953, Dennis constructed a two story building to provide seating for 100 patrons who preferred to screen the movies from inside. It had a snack bar with huge lounge on the first floor with television viewing for events of national importance. The drive-in still shows up on a TOPO map in 1978, but I think it closed way before that. I was stationed at NAS Whiting Field from 1982-1984. It was not there at that time. I believe there is church on the property now.
