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.

Throwback drive-in is a lot of fun for the kids and everybody. Reasonably priced tickets especially getting two movies! Some of the little speakers still work which is cool but the radio sound is perfect. Screen quality is poor but come on you're not there to see IMAX. Other things that could be improved are the playground which is a... More

Makes you feel you are back in the 1960's. Very family friendly and lots of fun. Great thing to do at night while on the Upper Cape.

Upon arriving, the staff gave great advice on what row/area to park so I wouldn't be blocked by SUVs. The quality of the FM broadcast was great. The screen image was crisp. Advice for newbies: don't let your battery die. We saw many cars around us need jumps when the movie ended. The staff was prepared though, and did have... More
