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

A great experience, we all loved sitting in the trunk of the car an watching a movie with popcorn. Plenty of insect bites though so wear some repellent.

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

A must on the list. Saw incredibles 2 and it was awesome. Really quiet considering it was packed. Loved that they had the speakers for the window.
