Wonderful conparison between 1950 images when this drive-in was new, and Randy’s recent photos!

There were two drive-ins in Enid. One was called the Enid Drive-In and one was called the Trail Drive-In. I believe that we have the theaters flip-flopped here. The Trail Drive-In was located on the north side of town on Grand Ave. between Oxford and Cornell (see linked map). According to a friend that grew up in Enid, the Trail was demolished after a teen fell from the top of the screen tower. Mr. Carlisle’s images are of the Enid Drive-In.

I’m wanting to know whose the owner of that drive in. I would love to see about opening it back up.

Okie 78, the current owner of the Trail Drive-In site is Remax Premier Realtors in Enid. The concession stand is gone and the parking area is overgrown with trees coming up through the asphalt. It would take a major restoration effort to bring the theater back but there is a demand for it judging by the number of people who say they would support it.

Lauren, you are correct. The Trail Drive-In site is located on South Van Buren and the screen can still be seen from Highway 81.
