“Twister" Filming Location”
One of the oldest drive-in movie theatres in Oklahoma that is still operating. It has been run for three generations of the Powell family. It was built in late-1949 and opened April 22, 1950 as a venture of Video Theatres and A.R. Powell, Sr. In 1986 when Video Theatres were selling out, the Powells choose not to sell the Beacon Drive-In, and it has been in the family ever since. This was the drive in featured in the movie Twister.
This is not the Drive In fron the movie twister. They built one just for the moive across the railroad tracks from the train station in Guthrie. If you watch the movie, there is grain silos in the background. Here is the location.
The open field on the northside of the silos is where they built it.
So much fun!
