Oklahoma City, OK
|The Winchester Drive-in opened in 1968 and is still operating as a single screen. This neon sign has been here since the beginning. It features a 35 foot tall cowboy holding a Winchester rifle. As far as anyone knows, he was not modeled after anyone. The sign's paint and six neon colors are original. The cowboy's arm still waves in five-part animation. In 2010, the sign was damaged by hail and the neon was replaced. The ticket booth at this drive-in is also decorated with neon. These photos are from 2012. The screentower was painted blue around 2015. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]|
