This address given is incorrect.
The correct address for this drive in is 7388 US-80, Grambling, LA 71245. It is no longer in Ruston.
The address in the header is correct, and it was located on US 80
I grew up in Ruston and I do not know where you got the impression the Ruston Drive-In was on N Trenton Street. The one and only drive-in theater Ruston ever had was on US 80 West, just before you got to Grambling Junction. I remember when it opened, and we used to go fairly often. They always had a double feature. In the 1950s there was little in the pictured area of N Trenton except for a few scattered houses, certainly no theaters.
I found a drive-in west of Ruston at 7388 US-80 Grambling, LA. So, it may be the same one. Today, a church stands on the property, but you can still see the ramps. https://goo.gl/maps/sAB5y
