"My dad, David Ponton, ran the movies at the Skyline Drive-In in Waynesboro in the 1960's, and especially remembers two films: The Ten Commandments and Anne of a Thousand Days. I might note on the building behind the Skyline ticket office in the pix on the Skyline page. This is a storage building, not only for the Skyline but for the Wayne indoor theatre and possibly for the North 340 drive-in as well, as all three of them were possibly run by the same company. I remember seeing the Skyline many times in passing by, and I feel it is kind of sad that it wasn't preserved." -- Lois Ponton
