Capri Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1953 and was owned by Family Theatres. It opened as the Sand Springs Drive-In, but was later renamed the Capri Drive-In. It was a single screen with a 507 car capacity. The last years of operation the Capri Drive-In showed X-rated films. The drive in closed in 1995.

The only sign the ozoner existed today is the marquee is being currently used by the business located on the former site of the drive in. It is now an auto salvage and repair.

A nice marquee shot of the Capri Drive-In Theatre, before it started showing raunchy X-rated product.

The photo just above would have been taken in 1965.

A tropical ambience permeated the Capri grounds. Mimosa trees, frothy ferns, and exotic foliage surrounded the porperty perimeter that formed a natural privacy fence.
From the Beryl Ford Collection comes this vintage view -

As far as I know this was the only drive-in theatre in the nation with street car service that would drop patrons off at the gate -
