When was the last time you went to a drive-in theater? If it's been a while, or maybe you've never had the opportunity to go, Oklahoma has several drive-in movie theaters that you have to experience at least once.


The drive-in theater is one of the most unique and amazing ways to watch a movie. They were once very popular, especially during the 1950s, 60s, and 70s but sadly have nearly gone extinct. But not in Oklahoma.

There are still drive-in theaters in operation all across the U.S. that are keeping the memories and good times alive. Here in the Sooner State, we have quite a few drive-ins where you can relive the good old days.
