We love taking the family to the Drive-In. This one tends to repeat the main feature a little too much, so it's usually a one time event, but so fun to bring your lawn chairs and munch on popcorn while watching a movie!

What a truly unique place to bring a family and very inexpensive. The music makes you believe Richie Cunningham could be parked nearby! The bathrooms were pretty clean and the snack bar had tasty food. My only quibble is that parents need to watch their...More

As( one of the few remaining in the country, Wellfleet Drive-in is a summer attraction that should not be missed. A two-show line up begins at dusk with top tier movies every night. Attach the speaker to the car window, head over to the concession...More

This place is superb! Only $10 each for 2 new good films. There's plenty of parking lots for your cars, a playground for kids and of course, a snack bar. They have both the speakers next to the cars or you can turn on your...More

$3 a car for admission. Hundreds of vendor tables selling everything from local artist paintings, leather belts, hats, socks, furniture, antiques, etc., etc. Lots to see & buy at reasonable prices.

If you are old enough it brings back memories and for your kids it will be something completely different. We pack food and drinks, but there is a snack bar. The play ground has some original equipment that has to be from the 50s. You...More

We go early because it's just part of the fun. We are in line 20 minutes before the gate opens, but people trickle in right up to show time.. You will get in even if you go late, but tailgating is fun.
