Lauren Durbin commented about Cinema Treasures Reaches 10,000 + Theaters!!! on Jun 14, 2005 at 4:22 pm

I can confidently say that this is one of the most impressive sites that I have run across in my entire time on the web. I love that the site is not the product of just one persons work, but rather a collective effort amongst enthusiasts, researchers and preservationists from around the world. It has been a pleasure contributing the small amount I have been able to give so far, and I appreciate that the owners of this site have given me the opportunity to help out.

Tulsa’s Admiral Twin Drive-In was the winner of a Hampton Inn contest, “America’s Favorite Landmark.” In addition to the title, the theater will receive $20,000 to do renovations.

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.

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.
