Only a 20-minute drive from Sandbars Inn, Wellfleet Theatres, will take you back in time. With a drive-in theater, classic cinema set-up, and a dairy bar/mini-golf course, this unique Cape Cod staple will keep you entertained all day. We hope you’ll love it as much as we do! 

Drive-In Theatre

The Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre is a step back through the decades. For vintage lovers or fans of one-of-a-kind experiences, this movie-going experience is worth your time. As stated on their website, Wellfleet’s drive-in on Cape Cod is one of only 300 left in the country and the very last of its kind on the Cape. Closed for the season and re-opening in May 2020, this theatre is thriving. Such a short drive from your hotel room, we can’t recommend it enough. Please note that the tickets at this location are cash-only, though snacks are available for purchase with credit cards. We highly recommend checking out the FAQ before your visit to learn all about drive-in etiquette! You’ll be enjoying the show in no time!

Wellfleet Cinemas

Moving through the decades to regular old movie theatres, Wellfleet Cinemas offers the typical movie-going experience we’re all familiar with. The latest films in 2D or 3D, you can count on this to be a casual and fun time. What might make this experience better than what you’re used to at home is the price of concessions; Wellfleet cinemas “strive[s] to keep [their] concession prices far below that of the chains.” What’s not to love about that? Check out their schedule and enjoy the show. 


Dairy Bar and Mini-Golf

Though this experience is also open seasonally, if you’re here when it’s “on,” do yourself a favor and visit! It’s located in the same location as the two theatres, so you can load up on the tastiest snacks before heading into the movies. The mini-golf course is “retro” themed, pairing perfectly with the drive-in theatre; have a vintage date night and pretend you’re back in the 1950s! The mini-golf tickets are affordable at $5 for adults and only $3.50 for kids! You really can’t go wrong here. Be sure to try the soft serve and hard ice cream, and other delicious snacks. 


20 minutes from Sandbars Inn, this fantastic experience is well worth the drive. For $5, you can enjoy a game of vintage mini-golf with your partner or friends! Drive your car up to the big screen and relax like your parents and grandparents. Or bring it back to modernity and watch movies in 3D with your fresh-popped popcorn. Whatever you choose, you’ve made an excellent choice. We can’t wait to see you here soon!
