I don't have a photo, but, the memory is still strong.
I was stationed at the Air Force Base on Miller Trunk ( 77-80 ),
and I remember there was a drive-in movie across the street from the base entrance.
On the weekends, us GI's use to go there with plenty of beer and never knew what movie was playing.
Using google earth maps, looks like the drive in is not there anymore.

As the saying goes...those were the days my friend...

Well, I never could find anyone with any photos of the Duluth Skyline Drive In Theater.
Then again, it was the time before Personal Computers and phones with cameras.
I know a few of us from the Air Base going there and did more beer drinking than watching movies.
I really don't think anyone during those times wanted any pictures taken.

I did find some info on the person that started the theater in a link.
Ted Mann, Mann Theaters renown.

The Skyline Drive In was to open in 1949 and closed in 1986. Mr. Ted Mann passed Jan 2001.

Where the drive in used to be is 'Bullyan RV' park, which moved to that location from across the street in 2007, 4956 Miller Trunk Highway.
