Last Thursday I was ready for an adventure, so I grabbed some friends and drove to Chickasha, Oklahoma! I was in the mood do something super “summery” so we decided to go the Chief Drive-In Movie Theater!
We pulled up and it was like stepping back in time. I immediately thought of the movie Grease! We bought our tickets, drove through the gate and found the perfect place to park and watch the movie. The tickets were only $7 and every night they show a double feature so you get to watch two movies for the price of one. What a steal!
After finding just the right spot, we pulled out the lawn chairs and set up camp. If you want to sit in the car and watch the movie, turn off your headlights and tune the radio to 94.5.
No outside food is allowed in the drive-in, so we hit up the concession stand because popcorn is must for any movie I see. the Chief not only had popcorn, but burgers, pizza, nachos, pretzels and anything else you might want! I wanted one of everything!
The Chief Drive-In Theater was opened in 1949 and is one of the last standing drive-ins in Oklahoma! If it’s not already on your bucket list, you need to add it. The summer is quickly coming to a close, so make time to see a summer film in the next few weeks in Chickasha!
Let me help you explore another outdoor movies in Chickasaw Country! If you are in the Sulphur area, be sure to stop by the Saturday Movies on the Plaza in downtown at the intersection of Muskogee and 3rd Streets. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for a fun summer night! Admission is free and concession stand is available.
Because the summer is flying by WAY to fast, grab some friends, take a trip and catch a movie! Movies are the perfect way to spend a summer night, and don’t forget to share your photos with me using #RouteCC on social media.
Until the credits,
