Located in the Midwest City district of Oklahoma City. The Bomber Drive-In opened on May 23, 1952 with Patricia Medina in “Aladdin and His Lamp” & Bill Elliot in “The Longhorn”.

It was closed in 1974 and demolished.

Drive-in 54,

Just wanted to let you know, your picture is actually of the “BOMBER” drive in. Same location, but the Barton Family rebuilt it with a different orientation and larger capacity in the early 60’s, renaming it the Soldier creek Drive-in.

This opened as the Bomber Drive-In on May 23rd, 1952. Grand opening ad in the photo section for this theatre.

The drive-in was still called the Bomber in a December 1962 Daily Oklahoman article. OTOH, I found it listed in an ad in July 1966 as the Soldier Creek, and it was included in a merger with Gulf States in June 1968, so I’m not sure how long it stayed open.
