Only thing still there is the remains of the snack bar. It’s back in the woods about 50 yards from a roadway.

A more accurate address for this theater is 6103 SE 29th St, Midwest City, OK 73110. This points directly to the entrance road. Now several businesses (West screen) and overgrown woods (East screen).

Please update.

According to a lengthy article, with photos, in the Dec. 5, 1960 issue of Boxoffice, the entrance to the Twin was lined with “Softly glowing gas lights … to create an easy transition for motorists from the bright lights of the highway to the semi-darkness of the ramp areas.”

I saw Friday the 13 part 2 with My Bloody Valentine which came out in 1981 so I believe it closed around 1982 not 1980
