When we planned our trip to New England and Canada we stumbled upon this place. Wow! We just had to make a visit here! It's a kind of romantic view we have about those drive-in theatres and it's part of American culture in our, European, point of view. We drove there one night and bought the tickets. It surprised us... More

We go here every summer during our Cape vacation. It's become a tradition over the years. Make sure not to park too close to the front or you'll be craning your neck to see. Get there early and try to park in the middle.

Fun old school drive-in. Not exactly art film material, but who cares - it's a blast. Starts late, so fun for families with older kids.

Felt like Happy Days. Great option if traveling with kids or teenagers. The snack bar needs some improvement but overall it is a fun place to visit.

We loved visiting the Wellfleet Drive Thru towards the end of season. The sound quality on the original in-car speakers was top notch for our showing of Jaws/The Perfect Storm and there was a good selection of movie snacks in the cafe. Loved the 50's soundtrack played before the films too! A visit to the Cape wouldn't be complete without... More

Visited on a friday evening towards the end of season. The place is a little rough round the edges, but thats all part of the appeal. We were in a Jeep so had to park a little way back due to the height, but the screen is huge so still a great view. Our 2 year old loved it (then... More

This is a must on any trip to Cape Cod. The Wellfleet Drive-In makes you feel like you've stepped back into an episode of Happy Days. This is a great Drive-In theater with a snack bar too.

If you feel like having a retro night at the movies, this is the place to go! They even have those old-school speakers by your parking spot.
