Boxoffice, Nov. 19, 1955: “Stephen A. Oellerich has sold his interests in the Starlite and Skyvue drive-ins to the Central States Theatre Corp., effective December 1. The Starlite was built in the summer of 1947 by Oellerich and Philip E. Winslow - the first drive-in in Iowa. Two years later they built the 600-car Skyvue on the east side of Waterloo. Central States purchased Winslow’s interests in both theatres in June 1954.”
