Entertainment & Arts

Admiral Twin Drive-In

Oklahoma’s largest drive-in is a twin screen venue with a capacity for more than 1500 cars. It opened originally as a single screen in 1951 known then as the Modern Aire, and a second screen was added a year later and renamed The Admiral Twin Drive-In. It epitomizes the nostalgic drive-in movie theatres of the past…so much so that it was featured in the Frances Ford Coppola’s classic from 1983 ‘The Outsiders’ as the 1950’s hangout. Located directly off historic Route 66, The Admiral Twin has provided outdoor entertainment to generations of people-showing many classics. With the biggest screens in all of the Southwest, The Admiral Twin continues to be one of the busiest drive-in’s in the country.
