Lamesa: Sky-Vue Drive-In

Photo by Holle Humphries

Opened in 1948 with a capacity for 583 cars and seating for 320 walk-in patrons, the Sky-Vue Drive-In still thrives in the farming and oil community of Lamesa. Complete with playground, swings, and merry-go-round, the drive-in attracts moviegoers from across the South Plains to enjoy first-run films. Not to be missed is the snack bar (also open to the public) featuring the “Chihuahua” sandwich, a chili–pimento cheese–shredded cabbage combination.
