We all love a summer movie night — especially at the drive-in. The best example of how much we REALLY love a good summer movie in Tulsa is the ultimate drive-in flick, “The Outsiders.” Filmed in Tulsa by Francis Ford Coppola in the 1980s, it not only features a bevy of before-they-were-stars moments, but it was shot at one of Tulsa’s most famous pop culture icons, the Admiral Twin Drive-In.
After a nasty fire a few summers ago, we nearly lost this landmark, but thanks to support from the community, it’s been rebuilt and is back in business.
In fact, to kick off the summer season, the Admiral Twin is showing a classic double-feature this Thursday – “The Outsiders,” and another Coppola classic, “Rumble Fish.” The Admiral Twin seen onscreen at the Admiral Twin. Definitely a must-see this summer!
To celebrate summer and this great film created in our city, I came up with a few inspirations for your summer drive-in experience. Whether you’re feeling a retro-’50s vibe, or you want to experience a memorable date night, the drive-in is definitely where it’s at in Tulsa!
