A 2012 article in the Press Herald said that Doug Corson sold the Skowhegan to Donald C. Brown Jr. that year. It also said that Lockwood & Gordon Co. of Boston built the drive-in in 1954.

In January 2017, it posted to its Fundrazr page, “We’d like to thank all of the patrons of the Skowhegan Drive-In who helped us go digital. We didn’t get the full amount, but at least the amount we raised helped with the installation costs.”
