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

kencmcintyre on June 20, 2009 at 3:18 pm spells it Medow. I imagine there was only one drive-in in Stigler, so it may have had some different spellings.

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.

Located about 2 miles West of Stigler on HWY 9. You can still see the ramps and foundation of the projection booth.

A closer address is Oklahoma 9 and N4400 Road, Stigler, OK. The drive-in was located on the NE corner of the intersection.

A 1980 aerial shows the drive-in intact, but by a 1995 aerial, it had been demolished.

Today, the property is heavily overgrown with a cellphone tower on the NW tip. However, you can still see the ramps and perhaps some debris from the remains of the concession stand/projection booth.

Was the site a meadow before the drive-in was built there?
