There were ten drive-ins in Tulsa listed in the 1963 motion picture almanac. Eight of them are listed here, including the former Highway 66,now the 11th Street Drive-In. The two missing drive-ins are the the Modern Aire and the Sheridan.

Modern Aire was later renamed Admiral Drive-In Theatre …

The street photo is way off for the Skyline Theater. It’s basically located at 3909 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd on the west side of the road. It was completely torn down and is now overgrown with trees and brush.
