With flouishing oil fields nearby, the Derrick Drive-In name reflected a thriving industry that once supported this region. Today the oil wells are dry, and nothing remains of this 200 car capacity theatre, a gas station occupies one corner of the property. By 1957 it was operated by the Thompson Theatres Circuit.

U.S. 70 & Oklahoma 76, Healdton, OK 73438

The above address will map to the location of the drive-in, which was situated to the southwest corner of the intersection.

Address above is incorrect. Approx. address for this drive-in was 29164 U.S. 70, Wilson, OK 73463. The gas station is across the street. Part of the outline is still there.
