The Aug. 28, 1983 issue of the Daily Oklahoman had a long article on drive-ins, beginning with the story of Volney Hamm, who “got into the drive-in business in Lawton in the late 1940s, opening the Mount Scott Drive-In, which is still in business today.” Unlike some others of the period, Hamm’s drive-in opened with in-car speakers.

A more accurate address for this theater is 24 NW Sheridan Rd, Lawton, OK. This is Ross Dress for Less in Lawton. Although it does not map correctly through Google, this is the correct address. The entrance for Ross is where the drive in entrance was located. Most of Sheridan Mall was the theater itself.

Please update.

The Mt.Scott Drive-in in 1956 parked 500 cars compared to 600 cars at the Hawkins and Austin Drive-ins in Lawton. Mt.Scott was owned by Volney Hamm.

The Mt. Scott was moved at some point to south 11th street just south of Coombs road. This location was in operation in the mid-70’s to the mid-80’s, when all the drive-ins in Lawton seemed to go out of business. If you drive down south 11th past the municipal airport, on the east side of the road, part of the screen is still standing, although weather-beaten. The ticket booth and part of the concession stand are still there but nearly fallen completely down.
