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 Independent Theaters Inc. and A.R. Powell, Sr.
In 1986 when Video Independent Theaters Inc. were selling out, the Powells choose not to sell the Beacon Drive-In, and it has been in the family ever since.
