This isn't my photo. I admit it. I saw this happening when I passed by the Admiral Twin Drive-In today, but I was on the Interstate and couldn't stop, so I stole this picture from the Admiral Twin Facebook page. I'm sure they won't mind. I couldn't hold in my excitement at seeing the actual screen being affixed to the structure. It isn't every day (in fact, it isn't ANY other day) that you can see an old-fashioned thing like a drive-in movie rising from the ashes. I'm so proud of Tulsa for wanting to make this happen, and I'm thrilled that it's on Route 66. Tomorrow I'll drive over there and take some of my own pictures.
I'm the owner of Afton Station, in Afton Oklahoma, a small private Route 66 memorabilia and antique car museum housed in a restored filling station. We are visited daily by both domestic and foreign travelers who are exploring the charms of old Route 66. Their stories will be told here (and maybe a little bit of other stuff, too.) Since I live 80 miles from Afton Station, a straight shot on Route 66, you'll probably hear a lot about the Mother Road, too.
