V. A. Drive-In

Information and color photos of the V.A. Drive-In come direct from the roadsideoklahoma web pages –
Notes: "This was presumably a tiny drive-in. The only thing that remains is the concession stand."

The V.A. Drive-In was operating by 1955.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which was on the southeast corner of the intersection.

Here is a 1973 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS:

NYozoner is correct about the address, the drive-in was located at Alma Rd & Old State HYW 7, Velma, OK. It sat on the SE corner of the intersection facing North.

You can still see the outline of the ramps and the concession stand/projector booth is still intact.

@davidcoppock Probably Velma-Alma considering that’s what the high school is named!
