Located to the west of Wright City, OK and north-east of Valliant, OK. With only a 100 car capacity the Little River Drive-In was a quite small outdoor cinema. It opened March 20, 1959. Surrounding terrain was most lovely, and it has been said that this theatre refelcted this fact by maintaining "wild growth" landscaping. It was still open in 1966.

It was called the Little River Drive-In, as it was situated on the east side of the Little River on Highway 98 (Now Old Highway 98)

It appears the land is now private property with a house located where the projection booth would have been and a barn or stable where the screen once stood. However, you can still clearly see the ramps and entrance of the drive-in to the property itself.

Boxoffice of March 30, 1959, said that the Little River Drive-In had opened on Friday, March 20. Owner Bill Crosby was also the operator of Wright City’s indoor house, the Choctaw Theatre.

A closer address is E2020 & Old State Hwy 98 Valliant, OK 74764.

That puts it about as close as you can with Google.

A note in the May 30, 1966 BoxOffice said, “Bill Crosby and Harve Wooden operate the Little River Drive-In at Wright City.”
