KSWO, Lawton OK’s News Leader, ran a story last night about the Chief Drive In Theatre in Chickasha, about 45 minutes away. As part of its “One Tank Trips” series, it showed families having fun watching a movie under the stars.
The video includes interview clips with owner Barbara Egbert, who worked at the Chief as a 16-year-old and bought the place “about 11 years” ago. There’s that magnificent tree-lined entry ramp, a good example of how designers built up the drive-in experience when it opened in 1949.
The only real news is that the TV station captured and shared a few minutes of what visiting the Chief is like these days. That’s always something to celebrate, so check it out!
