Complete with a snack bar, a playground, and a miniature golf course. Beer and wine is available, and the outdoor cocktail bar is open most nights in July and August. The Wellfleet also has an indoor cinema (open year round) with four screens that feature Dolby Digital Surround Sound. The cinema features matinees daily all summer. The Drive-In is open from Memorial Day through just a bit after Labor Day.
