Here is a fantastic link that has a lot of classic Oklahoma theatres. Click below to read a brief history of Twilight Gardens Drive-in, with lots of photos. That grand opening ad doesn’t exaggerate the magnificence of the graceful entrance foujntain.

missmelbatoast commented about MacArthur Park Cinemas on May 20, 2009 at 12:50 pm

This multiplex had the charm of a bus station. It had cement block walls, and this was the first OKC cinema not to have curtains over the screen. Instead of drapes, it flashed advertising slides during intermission. Seats were most uncomfortable, and there was always sound bleedover from other auditoriums.
I took a friend there once, and upon exiting the theatre he said (no matter what was showing) he never wanted to go there again. And he didn’t!
