I'm sorry you had an unsatisfactory experience at The Dreamland. You mentioned you watched a movie and it was the worst. I assume you chose the movie you watched? Our concession stand has never been out of soda since we opened 5 1/2 years ago....More

We usually include a visit to the Dreamland Theater during our weekly trip to Nantucket. The selection of movies is usually decent and they will sometimes do "special showings" of kids movies on rainy days. Fresh popcorn and the usual candy and drink selection. Also,...More
