The Riviera Drive-In was once one of south Oklahoma City”s flourishing theaters boasting a 700 car capacity.
The Riviera Drive-In closed in 1999 after thunderstorm in which the screen was blown down. The fallen screen, ticket booth, speaker poles, projection booth, concession stand, and marquee all remained vacant and seemingly forgotten for years. All that currectly remains are the concession stand and projection bulding.
