Outdoor movie watching must make a comeback. Haven't gone to a drive-in in years and was just reminded how cool it is. Jockeying for a good spot is what it is. We ended up with a good one. Plus seeing two classes summer movies - Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jaws is just perfect. Only problem was humidity condensing... More

There aren't too many drive-ins out there anymore and I feel like this experience is something that everyone should have. The movie was clear and the sounds, piped over the car radio, was great. We really enjoyed it- now if my car only had bench seats.....

Very nice staff. Ticket attendant gave us a military discount and even had dog biscuits for our pups. They helped us tie our hatch in place after we were settled (we had an SUV) and no problems with the speakers at all. Only word to the wise (and reason for 4 instead of 5 stars) was the very obvious and... More

What a memorable experience! We really weren't sure what to expect with this place but having experienced it, couldn't recommend it highly enough! We were first to arrive in the queue and pitched up towards the front. However, after walking around it looked as though every spot had a good view and there is an individual speaker for each car...

This is a well run, old school drive in. They do a great job positioning the cars so everyone has a view. Our advice; * beach or lawn chairs - there is usually room behind or around your car * bring dinner or snacks - but if you can't the snack bar has great movie food * bring bug spray... More

Step back into drive-in history! This drive-in always has double features and still uses the 1957 clunky metal sound boxes that hang on your window. You can also tune in to their sound signal on your radio. Fun time for all.

We arrived about 7pm for a 7:50p movie and had our choice of spots. We were driving a mini-van and should have brought some chairs to park outside the car. The attendants are super friendly. One comes around and ties your hatch down just enough so it doesn't block people behind you. He asked politely but it was a rule.... More

We finally made it to Wellfleet to check out the flea market at the drive-in. Cost to get in was only $1 per car. There was plenty of parking in the drive-in spots. Snack bar was open, and we enjoyed some delicious buttery popcorn. There were many vendors, and they were spread out over quite a large area. Not sure... More

Adorable place, plan to arrive early to get situated. Bring beach chairs or back in and watch from your SUV. It's dark so watch your step!!🎬🚗🌛🎥
