A great family night on the Cape Cod is the Wellfleet Drive in theatre Enjoy first run double features movies every night in the summer at the only Drive-In Theatre on Cape Cod. Built in 1957, the Wellfleet Drive-In hosts a 100′ x 44′ screen, and a state-of-the-art FM stereo sound system that decodes modern sound tracks. In many (but not all!) spots Mono original speakers are available for your nostalgic listening pleasure. There’s a playground and snack bar too! The Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre is open from late May through the weekend beyond Labor Day.
You must plan to listen to the soundtrack through your car stereo on FM 89.5. Mono speakers are no longer 100% functional. Like lots of things from the 1950’s, some still work and some don’t! These are mostly for nostalgic purposes; the sound is much better through your radio. You should also use the accessory key position (see your car owners manual) instead of the on position, and turn off all other accessories including the a/c even though the engine isn’t running. Please know how to disable your car alarm as well. Please keep the sound to a reasonable volume, our neighbors need tranquility.
