Tulsa's Admiral Twin Drive-in is in the running for $20,000 in fix-up money and to be called America's Favorite Landmark.

Its part of an Internet contest run by Hampton Hotels and you can help select the winner, just log on and vote.

Drive-in owner Blake Smith says a facility like this has lots of places to put the money. "Off the top of my head, we'd probably use it to fix up the concession stands." Smith says they would also fix up around the box office.

The Admiral Twin was featured in the Francis Ford Coppola movie The Outsiders, and has been a Tulsa family favorite for more that 50 years.
