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

Took the grandkids who had never been to a Drive-In movie! Still the same vintage drive-in still with its 1957 chunky speaker system. Concessions were tasty and the buttery gigantic popcorn bucket made the night complete. Always has double features too! A must do! Step back in time.

They have rewired all the old 'speakers' so you can have the genuine experience - or can tune in on your car radio. And there's always a double feature bill! It rained when we went but we still loved it - you can sit in the boot of your car with the back open!

As a visitor to the US, I'd never been to a drive in, so we entered the park with great excitement. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was a wonderful experience. We could listen to the sound through the car, the screen was very clear, and we enjoyed the movie, what more can you ask? And a very cute 1950s... More

I'll I misread the website. They take credit cards everywhere except the entrance to the drive in. Signs all over saying cash only. Nobody to ask a question but the old lady selling tickets. I said to her that I was on the website and I thought they accepted cards. She gave me such a look! Like I was a... More

We go to the Wellfleet Drive-in every summer and love it. Kids play on the playground before the show or during intermission. We sit in the back of our truck with lawn chairs, blankets, pillows and listen to the car speakers, or when working, the pole speakers. The back rows are reserved for SUVs, trucks and minivans, but visibility is... More

Introducing our kids to the drive-ins we enjoyed in our youth was a treat for all. Bring bug spray. We brought in dinner from an outside restaurant and ate it while we waited for the movie to begin. They show a double feature, but plenty of vehicles last after the first show. Minivans and trucks are directed to the first... More

Wellfleet drive in is a standard part of our summer vacation on the cape. It's a blast of nostalgia and always fun. Just bring you big spray!
