The Sapulpa Times over the weekend revealed in a Facebook post one of the 12 vintage trailers that will be used as Airbnb lodging sites when the long-closed TeePee Drive-In theater in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, reopens in the second quarter of 2022.
The news outlet reported the trailer will be one of 12 Spartans designed with 1950s decor and culture in mind. The display is at the corner of Main and Thompson streets in Sapulpa.
Here’s the Facebook post:
The Kante Group, which owns several other historic buildings in Sapulpa, purchased the property earlier this year. A follow-up report stated the new owners were going to add 12 vintage trailers, a playground, a dining area and shopping to the property but keep the vintage elements, including the original screen.
The TeePee was built in 1950. The last movie was shown there in 1999 or 2000.
The theater sits along the original Ozark Trail alignment of Route 66 west of the city, near the century-old Rock Creek Bridge.
