This opened on July 26th, 1948. Grand opening ad posted. Closed winters until 1951.

The Skyway was on Maynardville Pike which is what Broadway becomes after you leave the Knoxville city limits. The location is in the unincorporated community of Halls Crossroads. I have set the streetview to the correct location. It shows the original driveway which is now the entrance to the trailer park that sits on the spot where the drive-in was. You can take the streetview up Mynatt Road which runs along the south side of the property, and still see the old metal fencing that was around the drive-in.

The last add in the newspaper that I can find was in September 1973, so I would assume that it closed for good after the 1973 season.

The correct address is 6517 Maynardville Pike, Knoxville, TN 37918

Thanks for the correction. I have always called that section Maynardville Hwy, but it doesn’t become “Highway” until it crosses the Knox/Union County line.

I checked the 6517 Maynardville Hwy address and it puts you out in the county.

The address is: 6517 Maynardville Pike, Knoxville, TN 37918 It makes a big drifference.
