Midwest Living Review

Lisa Meyers McClintick
With its retro neon sign, the Skyway serves a sweet dose of 1950s pop culture with nightly double features that pair family flicks and summer blockbusters.

The Skyway provides several ways to experience the big screen: from the climate-controlled privacy of your own vehicle, on bring-your-own lawn chairs or seated on supersized benches in the equivalent of an outdoor front row.

One of the oldest drive-ins in Wisconsin, the Skyway has been attracting families for summer movies since it opened in 1950. Vehicles have evolved significantly since then, but the essential drive-in experience remains the same. Viewers in the first four rows listen to the movie through old-fashioned car speakers (dial into your car radio or bring a portable radio if you’re kicking back in camp chairs). The snack bar gets busy before dusk and at intermission hocking pizza, ice cream, hot dogs, nachos and popcorn with real butter. A large play set gives restless young viewers an outlet for their energy.

The Skyway is an affordable summer fun destination for the whole family; adult admission is $7.50, kids 5 to 11 are $4, and children age 5 and younger get in free. The double features start with a family flick at dusk (which can mean after 9 p.m. at the height of summer) followed by a current action adventure. Get cash first—the Skyway doesn't accept credit or debit cards.
