Boxoffice, Dec. 17, 1955: “Just 22 days were required for construction of the Skyway Drive-In, which was opened here recently by the Manos Amusement Co. The 400-car theatre was designed and supervised during construction by Tom Manos, son of George Manos, circuit owner … Grading operations opened the Skyway project. Four days after grading began, construction of the concrete block screen tower was started. Tower construction for the 34x82-foot screen, including painting, required 17 days. At the same time the concessions and projection building, a 26x48-foot structure, was advanced to usable condition. Ten additional days were applied to finishing inside work on this building after the drive-in opened. Opening night was just 22 days after grading operations began. The concessions building and boxoffice are of knotty pine, inside and out, the boxoffive having a modernistic roof, narrow in the back and flaring out and up in front.”
