Hilltop Drive-In

The Hilltop Drive-In was opened prior to 1955. Pretty pastel colors disguised the fact that the Hilltop Drive-In was a typical "cookie cutter" drive-in theatre: screen tower, boxoffice, concession stand, and confining fences were all constructed of cheap, corrugated zinc metal. After dark dramatic lighting effects also helped dress up the facility.

The Hilltop Drive-In was operated by (RKO subsidiary) Video Independent Theaters Inc. It was destroyed by fire in August 1968.

During Spring & Summer Eastern Oklahoma has an abundance of lightning bugs. I commented (on another drive-in) just how lovely this must have been after nightfall. Serveral persons have informed that in this region of Oklahoma theatre operators resented these fire flies because their flashing glow was so thick it often caused a distraction for outdoor movie viewing.
