The Bomber Drive-In opened at Southeast 15th Street and Douglas Boulevard in Midwest City on May 23, 1952, with the films "Aladdin and His Lamp" and "Longhorn".
The name was changed to Soldier Creek on July 29, 1964. During the early part of the 1964 season, the screen was moved from the north end to the south end of the lot, reportedly because of auto accidents caused by people driving down Douglas Boulevard and watching the movie.
The theater did not reopen for the 1974 season. The site was razed sometime between 1974 and 1980. In 1988, a convenience store was constructed on a corner of the lot.
