The Starlite Drive-in was operated by United Artists Theatres. There was also a sister drive-in located in Palo Alto known as the Palo Alto Drive-in Theatre, which was located near Bayshore Freeway (101).

There are 2 pictures at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/28503.html
based off of those, the Drive-In was located at approximately 150 Harbor Boulevard, Belmont, CA 94002-4016. Chris’s New Harbor Bar‎ is at this address. The area, now filled with warehouses and storage units, is no longer recognizable as a former Drive-In.

The correct address of this long gone drive in at the Cinematour link provided by Element1604 is 300 Harbor Blvd. It was near the intersection of Harbor and Industrial Rd.

Here is the opening day ad on September 19, 1947. The San Mateo Times notes that the Starlite “quickly disappeared” in the spring of 1974, and a Coca Cola bottling plant was built on the site in 1976.

As the previous comment notes, the Starlite was at 300 Harbor Blvd, where Harbor Blvd meets the 101 Freeway. (See news article and historicAerial in photo section)
