The very old North 5th Street Drive-In had some unique seating which was situated on top of the concession stand’s sloping roof. In 1955 it was operated by Video Independent Theatres.

This link states this 5th Street property is now used as a junk yard. A sad ending for such a nice drive-in!

Fixed the Google Earth picture. The one before was looking out at a field. The new one is the junkyard that raybradley mentioned.

Guys,I have it parking 400 cars in 1956,No estimate on roof seats. It was owned by Jack Guest.Noticed there were two other Drive-ins in Duncan in the late Fifties.

I believe that the indicated location of the 5th Street Drive-In is wrong. Here is the aerial photo of the drive in. http://tinyurl.com/ldknwh2 Note that the roads are parallel. If you go further south to 5th & Elder, you’ll see where it matches up. http://tinyurl.com/m63dvj2

A Bank now sits on the property, but you can still see the outline of the drive in and the ridges.

North 5th Street Drive In was in the Duncan telephone book in 1951 and drop in 1956. Duncan Iron and Metal is in the background.
