Choctaw Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Choctaw Drive-In was opened prior to 1955, when it was operated by Glen D. Thompson of Thompson Theatres, Oklahoma City. Beside the drive-in was the Sooner 69 truck stop and motel.

It was closed sometime in the 1980’s. Today a private residence stands on the site of the drive-in.

This drive-in was located just north of what is now Hwy 69/75 (Jefferson Hwy) and W Boggy Depot Rd.

A closer address is HWY 75 and Shady Lane, Atoka, OK. Today, Kenco MFG sits on the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining. http://tinyurl.com/kb96ygw

Why was it called Choctaw?

It is in the Choctaw territory, so that’s probably why.

Is that a native American tribe?
