Admiral Twin Drive-In burns down

On Friday, the Tulsa institution Admiral Twin Drive-In unexpectedly caught fire and burned to the ground. This is a heartbreaking loss for Tulsa as it has been an important element to Tulsa's movie fabric since the early 1950s. A save the Admiral Twin Facebook page has been started and they have over 22,000 people on it as of Monday morning. Go here if you want to join it and get information on how to donate money for rebuilding it or buying a t-shirt, etc etc.

Earlier this year I wrote a longish piece in Urban Tulsa about the Admiral Twin and my love for it--go here if you want to read it.
