My parents used to take us here as kids, as teenagers we would all pile in a car and go to hang out on summer nights, and now I take my wife and 3 children here 2-3 times every summer. So awesome that it is still around - nothing beats a giant screen, popcorn and the great outdoors. My kids... More

We love this place. There are so few drive in theaters left and it is a piece of Americana. They still have the double feature and we go every time we are on Cape Cod. We have stopped at the local fish shack, gotten clams and other food and had dinner at the drive in. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE!

Hadn't been here in more than 20 years. It's as if I drove into a time machine. The food choices were as expected. The movie choices for the drive in were perfect summer fare.

Showing started at 7.50pm, but we arrived half an hour early to get a good view, with a working speaker - worth doing this. We ate at the concession stand, which has standard cinema fare, but you can bring in your own snacks. Bring cash - no cards accepted here. Also, bear in mind that as your engine must be... More

This is our second trip here with the kids and we love it. Cheap considering you get admission to two films. They only accept cash which is only slightly inconvenient but there is an ATM available. Snacks and restrooms available. They open their doors at 7 and it can fill up quickly so get here early!

Definitely pack some blankets and pillows. It gets cold at night. There was no bugs to be seen. We packed a cooler and enjoyed the movie. Only... More

Double features are a must here, they have everything from burgers to bagels to candy and soda, even hot chocolate for when its chilly. They always have the best movies playing, a memorable experience for all. They even have mini golf at the entrance, one of my absolute favorite places amongst the entire Cape.
