Let's admit it, it's hard to find a drive-in in this day and age. They always play the most current movies, but the intermission film is still the same as it was in the 50's! Always mix up the two films, the first one the young kids can watch and the second is usually for adults. There is even a mini golf course right outside the theatre. Also, be sure not to miss the flea market during the day.

Pile the kids into the car, grab some beach chairs and head to the drive-in for a fun family time. Two movies plus shorts every night and hilarious old-time spots for the snack bar. My daughter always used to laugh at the dancing hot dogs etc. First movie is always the kids movie, after they fall asleep you can watch the second more adult movie. Kids playground keeps 'em busy until show time. Pretty decent snack bar food too. A must-do when in wellfleet with the kids. Great summer memories abound.

Going to the Wellfleet Drive-in is such a treat. Even the old time commercials before and between the double feature are a hoot. I'm glad they have kept the old fashioned speakers even though the sound comes through the car radio now.

There should be more drive ins around like there was in the 1950's-1970's! Loved coming here! Reasonably priced and a good time! It's always a double feature and adults only pay $9 each...not bad at all for 2 movies! The snack bar is also reasonably priced with a great variety of food and snacks....and friendly employees!

The Wellfleet Drive-in is a well loved Cape Cod treasure. Last year we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at the drivie-in. It was past Labor Day so the place was very empty. We had the pick of the parking/viewing spaces. Once selected we had to decide if we wanted to use their speakers or get the sound on our car radio. Although the speakers are cool we opted for the radio. It was a misty night which added to the atmosphere and was quite appropriate for the second movie (there is always a double feature) which was Thor!

We are so looking forward to the Drive-in again this year and by the by it is dog friendly.
