Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre

51 Rte. 6
Wellfleet, MA, 02667, United States
TEL: (508) 349-7176

The only drive-in theatre still operating on Cape Cod, this nostalgic landmark first opened on Route Six in 1957. Every night from late May until Labor Day weekend, the theatre shows first-run double features on a 100-by-44-foot outdoor screen. Surround sound is accessed via car radios, although several parking spots still provide the option of old-fashioned mono speakers, which attach to the car window. The theatre grounds also contain a snack bar, an indoor-outdoor dairy bar and grill, and a mini golf course dating back to 1961. On weekends, the site hosts a flea market with up to 200 vendors.

Insider Tip:

Arrive early to claim a good parking spot; you can then leave your car to have dinner or play a round of mini golf before the movie begins.
