Rietta Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Rietta Drive-In was a small town operation with only a 200 car capacity, but the screen was of good size. In appearance this was a rather plain facility.

Outdoor theatres cannot operate until after dark and at this cinema vast quantities of flashing lightning bugs were a distraction to patrons trying to watch a movie.

Whether fire flies caused an early demise of this drive-in is no longer known, but this facility shuttered before the mid-1960’s.

You comments on the Rietta will be welcome here. (Henryetta was home town to famed actress Alice Ghostley)

The address of 10029 Old US Highway 62 is quite accurate. Today, there is a Shell gas station and a cafe called The Cowboy Corner on the site. There is no trace of the drive-in remaining.
