Sunset Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Sunset Drive-In was owned and operated by Louellen Overstreet and opened in 1959. It was a single screen and had a 250 car capacity. It closed in 1976 and part of the site and is now the residence of the former owner. The screen and concession building still stand in 2016.

This theater is not demolished. In fact, the screen and concession stand/projection booth are still standing. It is, however, located behind someone’s (perhaps the former owner’s) house.

A fine looking drive, even if it has been shuttered a long while.

Found it!!

A very close address (at least for Google) is Total Ave, Spiro, OK. The drive-in itself is just to the NE of the intersection of Total Ave and US 59 and behind a residential home.

Remarkably, the screen is still up and appears intact. However, the concession stand/projection booth appears to be worse for wear and even the ramps have faded away, but you can easily see the outline.
