Skyline Drive-In

The Skyline Drive-In sat at the intersection of Meadowlark Lane, Highway 24 (West Crawford Street) and West Court Street on the west side of the town. It was opened by 1951 when it was operated by Ray Winch.

There is nothing left of the drive-in.

Fun note from the April 26, 1952 Boxoffice:

CLAY CENTER, KAS. – A capacity crowd of 2,400 people in more than 400 cars attended the reopening of the Skyline Drive-In, Manager Ken Ehret reported, and saw the mishap when a loose spark ignited the gala fireworks display and set it all off at once. Gordon Erickson, who was presenting the pyrotechnics, lost his topcoat in the blaze.

The concession stand was remodeled this year. Arrangements were made to serve patrons inside during bad weather. The parking area was resurfaced.
