Don’t know if from the Rogers Drive-In folks could "sit and gawk, and watch a hawk making lazy circles in the sky", for Claremore is the actual setting for the fictional musical play “OKLAHOMA!” It was also the setting for the dramatic play “Dark at the Top of the Stairs”. Home town of famed actor Will Rogers, the Rogers Drive-In was named in his honor.
Though somewhat smaller than most outdoor theaters with a car capacity of only 264, it still had a good size screen tower. The Rogers Drive-In was opened on May 31, 1950 with Rod Cameron in “The Plunderers”. It was initially operated by the Griffith Amusement Company, and later by Video Independent Theaters Inc. It was closed in October 1996 and the facility has since been torn down.
