The drive-in location offered a spectacular view of downtown Tulsa, but it closed in 1970 due in part to the fact that it was well away from where the city was growing. The Apache, Airview, and 11th Street drive-ins lasted into the early 1980s and the Admiral Twin is still around today.

You can see what’s left of the Skyline Drive-In at 3909 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Tulsa, OK. The land itself is empty save for a cellphone tower. The old entrance road is just to the south of the trail leading to the tower and the remaining rocks and debris mark the outline of the drive-in. http://tinyurl.com/pngo3vv

Here is an aerial photo I found of the Skyline dated 1954. http://tinyurl.com/mewas5h

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.

Modern Aire was later renamed Admiral Drive-In Theatre …

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.
