We go here several times a summer. So much fun! There are always films for the entire family. The kids love it! If you are on the Outer Cape, I recommend catching a movie here.

Drive-In Theaters are hard to find in the US these days and the Wellfleet Drive-In is well worth the trip. Always a double feature, it is a great thing to do on a summer evening!

Its taken me 40 years to visit a drive in theatre and it was worth the wait! With approximately only 300 left in the U.S. this is a spot not to be missed if you’re in the area during the season. We caught a double...More

What a great experience to share with your family. Drive-Ins are rare and to have one that offers a family friendly double feature was great. The prices for the food and snacks were good. We got a pizza pie for under $11. We got there...More

The property and location are probably best known for the weekly huge flea market that operates during most days. BUT...it is also an operating drive in theater, showing current-run movies! How cool is that? When is the last time you cuddled with your sweetie at...More

The Wellfleet Drive hasn't changed much since I went as a boy decades ago. They still have the speakers on the poles though now you can use you car or portable radio. I recommend grabbing a pizza from the Red Barn or Fairway and sitting...More

Nostalgic family movie night - absolutely loved it. Go 45mins early to get settled. There is an oldschool style play area - a slide, swings, and spinny play thing. Bring glasses for distance (if you need), bring lawn chairs, bring blankets, bring snacks. There is...More

Stopped in with a group of friends and had a great time! The cost is per person and the food/drinks were pricey, however the experience of an old drive in is worth it! Loved sharing this with my kids!

Drive-in theaters are some of the most fun places you can still find in some parts of the country and the Wellfleet location is one of the oldest. Frequented by locals and tourists (if they know about it), it's a great place to meet with...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.
