Skylite Drive-In

One of a few drive-in theatres still operating in the state of Maine. The Skylite Drive-In was opened in 1972. With a 300 car capacity, it is located on 11th Avenue, just off Route 1.

The Skylite Drive-In is the most northern drive-in theatre in the USA, and is within walking distance to Canada.

Google Map is off about 1/3 mile. The Drive-In is South across from Dionne Drive.

Open ~1973? Can you verify the exact date?

Madawaska is the “most Northeastern town in America”.

More info and photos aways welcome.

Google doesn’t recognize the address for some reason.

Above address is incorrect. Approx. location is in the 1100 block of 11th Ave. Use 11th Ave & Dionne St. to map.

Note that the Cinema Treasures entry for the closed Madawaska Drive-In is under Upper Frenchville here.

Multiple sources say the Skylite opened in 1973, owned from its beginning by the Pelletier family, currently by Donna and Gary Pelletier. Here are my IMPA listings since then:

1972-76: not listed.

1978-82: Skylit, Pelletier, 395.

1984-88: Skylite, R. Pelletier.
