Oakhills Drive-In

Opened on June 8, 1956 with Tom Ewell in “The Lieutenant Wore Skirts”. Ada’s Oakhills Drive-In had a capacity of 500 cars. Now demolished, further history of this theatre seems to be lost with time.

Arlington St & N Monte Vista St, Ada, OK 74820

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

Here is a 1957 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS:

Mike,

The Tower was another drive-in, on Broadway in the north part of town. The Tower is already listed on CT: /theaters/20849/

A more accurate address for this theater is 3101 Arlington St, Ada, OK 74820. This points directly to the drive in itself.

Same drive-in? Ada Weekly News, Dec. 30, 1954: “Frank Little, manager of the McSwain, Ritz, Kiva and Tower Drive-In Theatres in Ada announced today that the Circle 12 Drive-In Theatre on Highway 12 east of the city will open in the spring.”
