Here's the marquee for the Skyway Drive-in Theatre, which originally opened in 1950 and is a single screener. The Skyway Drive-In is located in Door County at 3475 Highway 42, Fish Creek, Wisconsin 54212, halfway between Fish Creek and Ephraim, directly across from Peninsula State Park. It is still in operation. I shot this photo this past July and yes, spent an evening under the stars at this great old Drive-In. 12-06

Just north of Kenton is the Hi-Road Drive-in Theatre. This drive-in was closed during the off season. The HI-Road Drive In was built in the 1940’s and has a lot capable of holding over 600 cars. The owners, the Millers, are looking to install a new larger screen closer to the size of the original screen tower that had been blown down in the early 1970's, as well as a lighted entrance and exit signs. 06-07


UPDATE 07/13 : The Hi-Road Drive-in added a new Screen 2 to their theater back at the start of the 2012 drive-in movie season. Many thanks to David Hughes for update. 07-13
