Abilene’s first drive-in, the Skyline Drive-In launched April 1, 1947 with John Wayne in “Tall in the Saddle”. Initially it only one single community speaker. The original owners were two armed service veterans who operated the theatre for one season before selling it to George and Ruth N. Likins of the Windsor Hotel. The Likins would modernize the facility in its second season, and renaming it the 14th Street Elmwood Drive-In. In 1953, the name was shortened to Elmwood Skyline Drive-In. Ruth Likins showed he last film on February 14, 1965.
The Elmwood Skyline Drive-In was demolished in January 1966 and the Bank of Commerce Building was built on the site. In 2015, the bank building still stands.
