Admiral Twin

A couple weeks back, Josh took me to the ultimate Tulsa experience: The Admiral Twin Drive In Theater

Once a popular hangout for Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez and the Karate Kid, the Admiral Twin is still open for business and enjoys a sort of landmark status. It costs $7 per person, which is less than the regular old theater, and you get to see not one, but two movies for your ticket. Once there, we backed the truck into a space and used an old battery powered tape deck/radio thing to pick up the theater’s radio frequency. We filled the truck bed with pillows and blankets and were quite comfy during our two movies. A plane flew overhead once or twice making it hard to hear, but that wouldn’t have been a problem if we’d been in our car like most people. As it was, it wasn’t enough to be unpleasant or make us miss anything important.

Best: Cheaper, bigger, and more comfortable (in a truck bed at least) than a boring multiplex.

Worst: Starts after dark (obviously), so you have to stay up pretty late to see both movies.
