The faint outline of the entrance drive is now gone. The only remnant left is the ramps from Pine Street which indicated where the entrance and exit roads were located.

A photo caption at the Oklahoma Historical Society, from the Griffith-Video Independent Theatres Collection, reads, “Photograph of the sign for the Airview Drive In, opened 1951, closed September 10, 1981, Tulsa, OK.” They got the opening date right, and that closing date had to come from somewhere. Then again, that was a Thursday, which would have been an odd day to close. Maybe the Airview closed on Labor Day 1981 (Sept. 7) and didn’t reopen the following Friday? Who knows?

Red Dawg: And the “tulsatvmemories” link really has alot of drive-in trivia, but the aerial 1940’s aerial photo is really the best!

The “losttulsa” link is fascinating and especially when I scrolled down far enough and found the Price Tower built by Frank Lloyd Wright article with photo. I have sent it to a fellow FLW fan as I know he will appreciate it.

Last January I bought a 2005 calendar with a wonderful antique photograph of the AIRVIEW Drive-In, along with views of other early day Tulsa movie houses. It’s entitiled ‘Tulsa, See-Ya at the Movies’. Don’t know if its still available, but this calendar was published by a Tulsa company called Yellow Pad Inc.
