Approx. address for this drive-in was 590 West Mount Pleasant Avenue.

Regent St. was the entrance (long driveway) and splits where the drive-in stood. YMCA and the series of buildings across the street (including Topaz International) makes up the drive-in property.

I went to the Livingston Drive-in many times as a child. The eastern edge of the lot was used by day as a motor vehicle inspection station. Back then, yearly car inspections could only be performed at a state inspection station, not at a garage, but it was free. This inspection site was open-air, had only a small shed, and had 4 metal plates in the ground, on which the inspector would slam on the car brakes as he drove over them, thus measuring the braking ability of each wheel. A simple swing arm gate prevented night time theater patrons from inadvertantly driving over them. The drive-in was located on the north side of route 10, which is also called Mount Pleasant Avenue. The entrance was near Widger Chevrolet and Warnock-Ryan Dodge. I think that this was the place that provided us with a heater to use on a chilly evening.
