Theater Photo by Yarmouth Drive-in

The Yarmouth Drive-in in West Yarmouth, Massachusetts is back in business, after showing its last movie in 1988.

Located along the river just south of Route 28 between West Yarmouth and South Yarmouth, the theater originally opened in the late 1950s and had just one screen. It now has three LED screens that measure 40 feet wide by 25 feet high, according to an article published recently in the Cape Cod Times (see links below). The theater's Facebook page mentioned that the opening night movie was Jurassic Park.

It appears that two of the three screens flank a center stage platform, so anyone hoping for three different movies playing at once likely will be disappointed. The use of LED screens should allow them to start movies earlier than a traditional projection-based drive-in, as they are bright enough to show an image before complete darkness. As of this writing, they are advertising shows starting at 8pm. The tradeoff that moviegoers will notice is that 40 feet is not all that wide when it comes to a drive-in situation. You'll want to arrive early to get a front spot if you want the largest image possible.

To see what's playing and when, please visit the Showtimes page for the Yarmouth Drive-in.

While indoor movie theaters remain closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, drive-in movie theaters have seen a resurgence around the country. This theater adds to the choices that moviegoers have, with the only other drive-in within 50 miles being the Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre about 20 miles away. Its website says that it has a 100-foot-wide screen, so this is an excellent opportunity to visit both and compare for yourself!
