|About these ratings|
With a mini-golf course nearby and a playground set up in front of the screen, the Wellfleet Drive-In is perfect for families looking for a break from the beach. Double features are shown each night throughout the summer (complete with a vintage welcome reel and quintessential theater snacks at the Dairy Bar and Grill), making for a memorable family theater outing. And though the original 1950s mono speakers have been known to offer spotty speaker functionality (they are antiques after all) you can always tune your radio to the drive-in's own 89.5 FM radio station for audio.
Past theatergoers say the retro drive-through experience is not to be missed, though they do recommend packing essentials like bug spray.
Tickets are a steal starting at $9 for adults and $6 for kids for two blockbusters, but be sure to book your tickets in advance. Films opening on Friday can be booked starting the previous Monday afternoon. Also, be sure to get to the box office by 7 p.m. to get a good spot before the show starts at sundown. Located right off of Route 6 in Wellfleet, the drive-in is only open for the summer season, from late May to Labor Day. However, the Wellfleet Cinema next door is open year-round, if you're really hankering for a show. For more information, visit the drive-in's website.
