At one time there were several drive-ins in McAlester and the vicinity. The Cinema 69 Drive-In was the last to be built (1973). It was built in conjunction with an indoor cinema on the same premises. As the indoor cinema grew into a quad, a lot of the drive-in space was taken up. By then the drive-in qualified as the smallest operating drive-in in Oklahoma. Due to local curfews the drive-in went from double bills to single bills.
Cinema 69 was the only indoor and outdoor theatre sharing the same projection booth and concession stand. Audio at the drive-in was provided over FM radio.
It was closed in 2004, and has been demolished, apart from the screen which still stands in October 2021.
