Opened in 1949, the Tower Drive-In had a capacity for 400 cars. It was built on lovely ranchland, set in a serene wooded landscape. The Tower Drive-In must have been a pleasant setting in which to watch a double feature, and a color cartoon too.

On this page you will also be able to see the Ramsey Tower designed by Walter W. Ahlschlager who created the NYC Roxy Theater.
The WKY Radio Kilgen pipe organ may be of interest too.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in.

There was no drive-in theatre on Sandy Creek Dr, according to the 1957 aerial photos.
