We don't have drive ins back home anymore so we always try to catch one when we can. This one is authentic showing double features, has a refreshment lobby, and even the old fashioned speakers for the car if you want. Very good!!

Perfect for a summer night at the Cape. Get to the theatre early to get a good spot and stock up on snacks before the movie starts. Admission price pays for BOTH movies, but feel free to only stay for one if you'd like. Great...More

Went here for our first night in Cape Cod. Great for the whole family, even grandma who hadn't been to a drive-in in 45 years. Facilities were just ok; long lines for mediocre ladies room during the break between the two movies.

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!

With the drive-ins dying down these days, this was a very pleasant surprise. We enjoyed our evening there, watching movies from the comfort of our mini van. Concession stand has variety of foods but we had picked dinner from red Barn, so not sure of...More

We have the pleasure of still having a drive-in in our home town, but had to check out the Wellfleet Drive-in during our stay. What a well run operation. Nicer than our one at home. You can use the old fashioned speakers in the window...More

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

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.
