Bi-State Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Bi-State Drive-In opened in 1954 and was owned by Fielding and Marie Norton. It was a single screen with a 300 car capacity. It was located near the Oklahoma/Kansas border, south of Caldwell, KS. The theatre closed in 1989 and there is only small evidence remaining of its existance today.

I went by this theater a couple of months ago and it actually isn’t totally demolished. The ticket booth is still present as is the concession stand and some playground equipment. However, the location is extremely overgrown. I usually am not daunted by tall grass, but after one tick I took off. I took some pictures, though, and will update my website tonight.

The drive-in is less than half a mile from the state line, hence the name Bi-State Drive-in.

However, the drive-in is not in Nash, but is north of Medford. Nash is about 30 miles southwest of the drive-in.

U.S. 81 & E0020 Rd, Medford, OK 73759

The above address will map to the location of the nearest intersection, which places the drive-in on the west side of US-81 approximately .6 miles to the north of the intersection.

The drive-in is also clearly visible on Google Earth using 2003 or earlier imagery.

This drive-in was WAY WAY out of town!

Across from the Caldwell Golf Course, literally yards from the Kansas state line.

Just the outline of the property exists today.

BTW The address above is in Jefferson NOT Medford!
