Stigler, OK 74462

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Only data available at this point in time is that the Medo Drive-In is closed, had a 200 car capacity, and one screen.

Would like to hear from you if you know more!

In 1964 the only drive-in listed for Stigler is the 200 car Meadow Drive-In. From 1969 to 1980 only the Medo Drive-In is listed for Stigler. I wonder if Meadow is an earlier name. Maybe the letters “a” and “w” fell off the sign and it became the Medo. :)

Ruth Roye owned the Meadow Drive-In in Stigler during the 1980s.

So the Meadow and the Medo Drive-In are one in the same?

Drive-ins.com spells it Medow. I imagine there was only one drive-in in Stigler, so it may have had some different spellings.

I don’t care about Drive-ins.com. Their information leaves alot to be desired. IMPA does list this drive-in as the Medo from 1969 to 1980. It probably was know as the Meadow at one time.

The Meadow Drive-In tower was not a flimsy display screen, like those of drive-ins that one sometimes sees today. The tower of the Meadow Drive-In was built of concrete blocks and wood; when I stepped inside the tower and looked up, the timbers which formed the interior soared high above me. I dreamed of turning the old tower into an unusual multi-storied residence, but it was not to be. Unfortunately, the substantially built Meadow Drive-In tower burned to the ground sometime during the 1980s or early 1990s. It was uninsured.
