I saw a double-feature, “Doc” and “The Hospital” at the Skyline. Those are two 1971 films so I know it was still in operation at that time. I don’t recall where it was located but when I asked I was given the impression that it was located on the south side of Rt. 56 at the junction of Rt. 62 (Clifty Drive). The Clifty Golf Range is located there now.

It was not located at the junction where the golf range is. The golf range has been there for almost as long as the drive in was. It was on 62. The gravel is still there. Log homes and other mobile homes were sold at the site and the marquee sign was still up though used for the business.

The Sky-Line Drive-In Theatre launched May 26, 1949 just two miles south of the Clifty Falls State Park northern-most entrance. The first film was “Black Bar.” The drive-in’s original configuration of the drive-in had spaces for 600 cars on an 8.5 acre site with its screen tower 53' high and a picture of 30'x40'. The concession speciality was its pronto pups.

Technically: It’s the Sky-Line and not the Skyline

I was clearly mistaken in an old comment that Sky-Line was located at the golf driving range, comparing old topographical maps to old and current aerial views, it appears that the remains of the marquee are still located at 38.756664° -85.449718°, that the screen faced away from the marquee and was located near 38.756841° -85.449381°, and that aerial views show the impression of a building that sat at an angle that faced the screen, still visible at 38.757139° -85.448797°, which is likely where the projection booth and concessions were located.
