Falmouth Drive-In Movies
Fairgrounds to host drive-in theater, and screenings will be held on library lawn.
Cape Cod visitors and residents will have ample opportunity to enjoy a movie on a nice summer night.
The Falmouth Select Board on Thursday approved special permits for a drive-in at Cape Cod Fairgrounds and for movies on the Falmouth Public Library lawn.
With the Barnstable County Fair and other summer and fall events at the venue canceled, the fairgrounds is partnering with Vivid Event Productions to convert the space into a drive-in theater.
The Falmouth Drive-In, which is expected to open in mid- to late July and operate until late October, will feature one movie every night except Wednesday.
The gates to the fairgrounds will open at 6 p.m., and at 6:30 a local performer — a comedian or a band — will perform while people are getting concessions and getting comfortable for the movie, Pacheco said.

Broadcast over FM radio, the movie will start at 7:30 or 8 p.m., with intermission halfway through, he said.
The lot with the drive-in will have room for 200 vehicles, he said. General admission is $40 per vehicle.
Vehicles over 6 feet tall will have to park farther from the screen and will be admitted for $30. A VIP season pass will be available for $250.
Half of the fees will go toward licensing the movies that will be screened, Wendy Brown, general manager of the fairgrounds, said at the Select Board meeting.
A plan is also in the works to hold concerts in a separate lot on the fairgrounds that has space for 275 vehicles.
Pending approval, “Toy Story 4,” “The Princess Bride,” “Frozen 2” and “The Neverending Story” could make it to the screens.
On Wednesdays, when the drive-in is closed, the Falmouth Village Association and Falmouth Public Library have partnered to host “Movies Under the Stars” starting July 15 on the library lawn.
“Movies Under the Stars” will go until Aug. 26 and will feature free, family-friendly movies.
The screen will face away from Main Street and be kitty-cornered on the right side of the lawn near the Shore Street extension, according to Donna Buckley, secretary for the village association. About 50 families will have room to spread out blankets or lawn chairs, Buckley said.
Buckley said the association hopes to create a family-centered space where people can enjoy Main Street, get some takeout and enjoy a movie on the library lawn.
“I just hope people will come and enjoy being in Falmouth village and everything it has to offer with the different restaurants and shops,” Buckley said.
The movies have not been announced yet, but further information will be available on the village association’s Facebook page, Buckley said.
Gates to the fairgrounds will open at 6 p.m., and at 6:30 a local performer — a comedian or a band — will perform while people are getting concessions and getting comfortable for the movie.
Movie will start at 7:30 or 8 p.m. and will be broadcast over FM radio.
