Brief history:
The Wodonga Skyline was part of the Hoyts Country Theatres circuit. Later joined by the Stargazer drive-in just over the border in Albury, the Skyline competed for much of its life against the hardtop theatres in the twin towns of Albury-Wodonga.

Hoyts decided to sell most of the reginal circuit it operated in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Wagga and Wodonga were sold to the operator of the Albury Cinema, Mr A. Smith. When the business was no longer viable, the site was subdivided and sold as housing.

Well, I did have some photos of the screen being replaced in the mid 1970's, but do you think i can find them anywhere, I'll keep looking.............
