Information for this tour was contributed by Wesley Horton.

While the location of the Cinema 66 is usually listed as 5801 North Eastern, aerial photos from 1970 show the entrance to have been off of Grand Blvd. On the marquee opening night (August 6, 1950) was "Father is a Bachelor" with Coleen Gray and "The Palomino". The theatre was built by Leo Thomas and sold to R.L. Barton in about 1964.

The theater was located in a unique section of town which was not very fashionable. The city has evolved, except for a small area around where the drive-in was located.
