Tulsaâ€™s Admiral Twin Drive-In was the winner of a Hampton Inn contest, â€œAmericaâ€™s Favorite Landmark.â€ In addition to the title, the theater will receive $20,000 to do renovations.
Wonderful pictures. Thank you for sharing the site.

This is a double posting.
It was located to the left of the end of the Belvedere Shopping Center and behind Blimpie Subs. It was relatively hidden.
There are no buildings facing Church St. on this block, so this theater must be history. The only building on the block is an old mill and a there is also a parking lot.
If the address above is correct, then this theater has been demolished. There is a gaping hole at 114 N. Main.
This was the theater featured in the movie Twister.
The Admiral, along with Oklahoma City’s Winchester, was the inspiration for the novel, Flamingo Rising, by Larry Baker. Baker once managed both of the theaters.
As of today, the Colony has escaped demolition. It is being renovated into a church ministry. The group appears to be preserving the exterior of the building.
