The Midwest SkyView Drive-In is extending its season through Christmas. “If 2020 was a normal year the drive-in would have closed by mid-Sept or early October,” says Billy Estes, Executive Director. “But with the recent increases in cases of Covid-19 and the public health challenges of containing the coronavirus, the board has determined it is not yet time to open the Historic Midwest Theater in downtown Scottsbluff. In order to offer programming, the drive-in season will be extended with some adjustments.”
Regularly scheduled film times will be Friday & Saturday nights, with special screening dates announced as scheduled. Weekend screenings will be announced on Wednesdays based on the latest weather forecasts, so some weekends will not have films due to cold or snowy weather.
Carhop / carside delivery service has been discontinued for the winter season. Patrons can still order online and walk up to pick up orders at the concession stand. Hot Chocolate & Hot Apple Cider will be added to the winter concessions menu.
Holiday Movie Magic movies will be shown at the Drive-In throughout December.
We are also offering the perfect company Christmas party location with social distancing built in –“holiday drive-in movie parties” please inquire for more details at 632-4311

While outside food is not allowed in the Midwest Theater building, the Midwest SkyView Drive-In Theater is a little different. We ask you not to bring your own food, but if you do so, we ask that you make a $5 donation to the “High Five Club”. Your “High Five Club” donation will help to pay the expenses of running the Midwest SkyView Drive-In while also maintaining the historic Midwest Theater building and supporting the work the Midwest Theater does for the community. Additionally, $1 from each “High Five Club” sale will go to different community non-profit organizations that support feeding our community. Of course we encourage you to make a food purchase from our concession stand – 100% of the revenue from concession sales supports the nonprofit Midwest Theater’s mission! Please – no sharing of food with other vehicles will be allowed currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions. NO COOLERS / NO ALCOHOL
