64 Drive-In

Two competing drive-in theaters were constructed in 1947 and launching in 1948 in Muskogee. The first to open was the P&M by Proctor & Marsh Circuit. The second was four miles south of town on a 12-acre lot and was to be the Bell Drive-In. However, veteran operator O.L. Sullivan took on the project mid-construction christening it the 64 Drive-In launching in August of 1948.

The two theatres were combined in the same portfolio with the downtown cinemas. The P&M was closed in 1958 after ten years. But the the town has a second ozoner. The Sunset Drive-In followed and would outlast the 64 Drive-In which eventually closed.

Found it! A good address for the site is 5201 S Cherokee St, the southwest corner of 53rd Street & US 64.

The drive-in was outlined in a 1978 topo map, but a 1980 aerial photo shows a building there that looks a lot like the building there today. That aerial still showed hints of ramps, but I don’t see them now.
