I recently had a chance to take in a movie at the Tulsa’s Admiral Twin Drive In. This is Tulsa’s old-time outdoor movie theater. It was fun! Thought I might pass the idea on to you as a potential Couples Date Night or as Family Night Out. As this is a seasonal activity, I decided to go ahead and write this piece while they are still open. When asked how long they stayed open? We were told that last year they were open from March 1st until December 1st. It sounded like they had not made a decision for this year yet. In a recent Facebook post they noted that they would close when the weather made them close. So . . . you may want to consider doing this here at the end of the summer or fall if you are interested. If in doubt just check their Facebook page or call them. Starting September 6, they are only open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays.
Admiral Twin Drive In, Tulsa, OK
A double feature is played each evening with two screens playing. Their Facebook info page indicates you cannot switch screens. We were also told this upon entering.
Sound comes through your radio speaker. You must have an FM radio to get the sound. Movie goers are allowed to sit outside of their cars with their lawn chairs or blankets if they wish. We noticed many folks opted to do this.
Animals allowed on a leash. Not allowed in restrooms or concession stands.
Admiral Twin operates a grill / concession stand. It was noted on Facebook that at times they have Food Trucks also as an option. I would check Facebook if you want to know on this.
Movie Times are listed on their website www.selectcinemas.com or http://www.admiraltwindrive-in.com can be gotten by calling them 918-392-9959 or you can locate this information on their Facebook page.

They are located 7355 East Easton, Tulsa, OK.
Special Note: As always, it is important to do your homework if this is a family outing as to movies that are showing and determining if they are appropriate for your age of children. Even though you can stay for both movies as it is a double feature, you do not have to. It appeared they try to do some family movies and some more adult type movies too.
If you’re in the mood to try something a bit old-fashioned and think your honey or family might like this kind of venue, it may be worth checking out.
