First opened as the Oxford Drive-In in August 1955, but its first films were “Saskatchewan” and “Forebidden” but unknown if any short subjects were added. It was twinned in 1961 and became the Oxford Twin Drive-In. It was demolished in late 1992 to make way for the Walmart which opened on August 31, 1993.

There are some pictures of the Oxford Twin on its gallery page at Drive-ins.com: http://www.drive-ins.com/pictures/matoxfo001.jpg The theater issued “fog passes” if the dense mist made viewing the show difficult.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is currently occupied by another insidious Walmart.
