Oklahoma 22 & S Refuge Rd, Tishomingo, OK 73460

The above address will map close to the location of the drive-in, which was on OK-22 east of town, on the north side of the hwy.

A more accurate address for this theater is 1415 E Main St, Tishomingo, OK 73460. This points directly to the drive in itself. This was next to what is now Dollar General Store.

Please update.

There is virtually nothing left of the drive in. Just an empty field with faint indications of ramps and the entrance road which is the only discernable item left.

However, it does appear from a December, 2021 Google Street View that there may be a few speaker poles remaining. It’s rather hard to believe since the foundations of the screen and projection booth/concession stand are gone, but it sure looks like a few speaker poles are still there.
