Opened on March 20, 1953 with Tony Curtis in “Son of Ali Baba” & Robert Ryan in “Horizons West”. The Sky-Line Drive-In was one of four drive-ins to exist in Richland, Washington, and the longest running.

Online posts from people who went there say it was the drive-in off of George Washington Way. An aerial shot of the drive-in shows the entrance off of Spengler Road.

It closed down and was demolished in 1975. Washington Square apartment complex and 7-Eleven are now in its place.
