The drive-in sat on a hill just to the south of where the Lawn Care Equipment Company building resides. You can still see remnants of the ramps and screen foundation. The ticket booth and the concession stand/projection booth appear to still be standing.

A large cell phone tower stands next to the projection booth/concession stand.

There’s a 1985 photo of the Sky Vue, apparently still active, at That site also has a 1990 photo showing the Sky Vue closed but the screen still up.

In a March 27, 1954 article about drive-ins' season opening dates, BoxOffice mentioned that W. A. Collins of De Soto owned the “Skyview”.
