In August 1999, an Associated Press article described the Sky-Vue, apparently in its first season, as being in Weston WI. “The Sky-Vue is on a 6 ½-acre spread with space for 300 vehicles,” it wrote. Todd Gress was the enthusiastic owner.

In June 2000, the Sky-Vue was advertising in the Wausau Daily Herald with a note “Now 2 Screens”. Its address was listed as 6615 County Road J, Schofield, and as “8 miles East of Hwy 51, 29E & Hwy J Interchange”.

The Sky-Vue’s 2002 ad described its location as “the intersection of Hwy 29E and Hwy J, Weston”. The last ad I could find for the drive-in was on Sept. 28, 2002.

The Daily Herald wrote in May 2003 that the Sky-Vue was about to be torn down. “The 6½-acre gravel-filled lot … was vacated at the end of last summer by Tim Suick, who was leasing the property after the Bank of Wausau foreclosed in 2001 on the original owner of the drive-in. The bank sold the property and equipment last fall, Suick said … Todd Gress, the original drive-in owner, bought the property in 1999 to provide inexpensive showings in an open-air setting.” In September 2003, the property owners donated the concession building to move it to nearby Kennedy Park for Weston’s recreation and park department.
