Minor screen damage from hurricane
Hurricane Dianna damaged screen. was repaired, name and format changed.
Reopened after Hurricane, name changed to Skyway
Since both Wilmington Drive-ins were damaged by Hurricane Dianna, Skyline was the only one repaired and reopened. Previously Skyline had most recently showing all X-rated pictured, but since this was now the only drive-in, the format was changed to regular comercial titles with an X-rated late show on weekends only. The name was changed to reflect the combination of the old Skyline and old Starway into the new Skyway Drive-In. It wasnt as successful as expected. Perhaps there was too much of a stigma associated with having been a former X-rated drive-in.
