Goodbye Old Friend

I am in Tulsa.
We had the most fun on this trip!
There is a sad part though.
The Admiral Twin drive in here in Tulsa burned down a few days ago.
We spent many a weekend night there, watching movies and hanging out.
The Outsiders movie was filmed in Tulsa and there was a scene filmed at the Admiral Twin.
It had a 9 story wood framed screen. You could see it from the highway and as we drove into town it was always there like an old friend.
This time, nothing.
End of an era.

  1. I'm sorry you lost your old friend. I hate it that it burned down. It is ironic that I posted about drive ins and here you are talking about this one.

    I'm glad you are having a great time in Tulsa.

  3. Awww! That is sad! We had a drive in less than a mile from where I grew up. Our family watched MANY movies there! But now....I wouldn't take my kids there in an armoured tank and uzis for everyone.

    So sad!

  4. I remember going to drive ins when we were growing up. It was the cheapest way to take a family to the movies. So sad they are all just memories now.

  6. Actually, neither. It was vegetable beef. I loved it because it had cabbage in it. Almost no restaurant puts cabbage in their veg/beef soup and I always do.

    Hope you are having a good time away.

  7. I wonder if they'll rebuild it? Drive-Ins are becoming rapidly extinct, it seems, which is also sad.
