The map shows this in the wrong location. It’s located farther south toward North Eastham, a little south of Gill Road and across the highway from Village Lane.

The Wellfleet is a fabulous drive-in…in fact, a complete drive-in and cinema complex to die for. I’ll post more later, including pictures.

What a great theatre! I’ve been bike-backpacking in the cape for a few weeks. It’s on Route 6 where inns dot the landscape and it’s a few miles from one of the town’s centers. They have found a niche and a way to stay in business all year round. They have one movie screen as well as a mini-golf course (that’s very subpar, no pun intended), a restaurant, a bar that faces the golf course with ice cream, etc. The adjacent field serves as a weekly flea market, the largest of its kind in the area. The staff are awesome too.

The architect for this theater, as well as almost if not all of the Sack Cinemas, and Sonny and Eddy’s Cinemas, and many independently owned cinemas, was Burt W. Federman. His office was in Park Square (Boston) and he designed or “twinned” literally thousands of cinemas in the New England area. By the 1980’s, he designed many of the Showcase cinemas located in New England and the central atlantic states. He passed away in 1987. He had also developed a soundproofing system for cinemas which had been first used in a mutiplex he had designed in the Bronx.
