Step back into drive-in history! This drive-in always has double features and still uses the 1957 clunky metal sound boxes that hang on your window. You can also tune in to their sound signal on your radio. Fun time for all.

We arrived about 7pm for a 7:50p movie and had our choice of spots. We were driving a mini-van and should have brought some chairs to park outside the car. The attendants are super friendly. One comes around and ties your hatch down just enough so it doesn't block people behind you. He asked politely but it was a rule.... More

We finally made it to Wellfleet to check out the flea market at the drive-in. Cost to get in was only $1 per car. There was plenty of parking in the drive-in spots. Snack bar was open, and we enjoyed some delicious buttery popcorn. There were many vendors, and they were spread out over quite a large area. Not sure... More

This is simply the best. It's a great way to unwind after a day alt the beach. The open air movie theatre gives you your own movie viewing experience.

Not as good as it used to me. I remember vacationing to Cape Cod when I was younger and we would all group up in a big van and hit the Drive In theaters now the prices are extremely high and they have no renovated any of the facilities!

The weekend flea market that is held in the lot of the drive in is plenty big enough to walk around for a few hours and yet not so big that you end up feeling overwhelmed and like you missed things. It sported a nice mix of new, vintage and antique and the vendors were all very pleasant and accommodating.... More
