A drive in theatre brings back long gone days from my childhood. It was more expensive than back then when they charged by the car. Here they charge by the head, but still a worthwhile experience.

We took our young son to a double feature here and it was fantastic! Get there early to get a good spot, but what an experience! Great sound quality and picture, good snacks and ice cream - what a treat!

We've wanted to go to a drive-in theatre for years so found this place whilst on holiday in Cape Cod. Overall this was a really enjoyable evening at an authentic 1950's theatre which lived up to my expectations. My only gripe is the insistence of...More

We just stopped by on a Saturday to check out the flea market vendors. Great atmosphere on a sunny day.

If you do not have a Drive-In near your house, this is a must do for evening. Arrive a bit early. There's a great playground for the kids - with a merry-go-round and everything you remember. This place has been in business forever and knows...More

I am old enough to remember drive-ins and this one brought back a lot of memories. It does show it's age in some places. I believe they said it was built in 1957. For $ 11.00 per adult, $8.00 for seniors, we saw two new...More

This is such a fun experience, but it tends to cater to a very young crowd and will often have repeated movies when they change over. We love going though!!

A Cape icon....the drive is not something you find everywhere but always a great family treat! Saw Despicable Me 3 & Wonder Woman. The place was packed for a July summer night...stars were out perfect weather. Playground for the kids and popcorn is a plenty....More

What can I say, it is something that us oldies remember, and something all of our young ones should experience. Takes us back to a time when family was more important than Facebook posts. Great concessions, always a great double header.

We love the Drive-In! This year we mourn the loss of food at the Dairy Bar. They used to have the best cheese-steaks on the planet and hope that management chooses to bring the food back or add to the menu at the snack bar...More

We go early because it's just part of the fun. We are in line 20 minutes before the gate opens, but people trickle in right up to show time.. You will get in even if you go late, but tailgating is fun.
