Tulsa, Oklahoma: The Outsiders Movie House

House featured in the 1983 cult film (starring a gang of up-and-coming Brat Packers). Purchased as a wreck in 2015, opened as a museum in 2019. The interior has been restored to the way it looked in the movie, but getting inside is hit-or-miss. You can see the outside for free.

Admiral Drive-In Theater.

The Outsiders Movie House

Directions to The Outsiders Movie House are spot on. Like a previous tip states, it may be in the process of becoming a museum, but not yet. There were workers at the house today. Also, I found out the Admiral Drive-In was used in the film and we found it, along historic Route 66.

This is fun to look at, but if you go when the museum is not open, there's not a ton to look at. Then again, I've not seen the movie. Tours are available by appointment only.

Francis Ford Coppolla's film of S.E. Hinton's book "The Outsiders" was more of a stylish curiosity when first released in 1983, but gained cult fans over time as a film starring a generation of boy actors. We'd have to watch again to see if the house is important (think Twister House, or Home Alone House) and to stop mixing it up with Hinton's and Coppola's "Rumble Fish" -- released the same year.

The Outsiders Movie House

This house was used as the home of the Curtis boys [played by C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, and Rob Lowe]. It is being restored to its original condition. It is not open to the public as of yet, but slated to open the summer of 2018.

Rapper Danny Boy O'Connor, a big fan of the 1983 movie, bought the house in 2016. He has reportedly studied the film frame-by-frame so that he can make an exact restoration of the house interior, which he plans to fill with his collection of Outsiders memorabilia.
