Concierge.com's insider take:

The oldest professional summer theater in America, the Cape Playhouse opened in Dennis in 1927 and still brings in Broadway-caliber talent and productions. (Bette Davis worked here as an usher before making her debut on the Playhouse stage.) Three years after opening the playhouse, entrepreneur Raymond Moore built the 300-seat Cape Cinema, which now shows first-run independent and foreign films and hosts live music and HD simulcasts of New York's Metropolitan Opera. Don't forget to look up: A 6,400-square-foot modernist mural of the heavens by Rockwell Kent covers the vaulted ceiling.

The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre operates year-round and is where David Mamet, Sam Shepard, David Rabe, and others have staged world premieres and other works. If summer blockbusters are more your taste, the Wellfleet Drive-In Theater, a Cape staple with a dairy bar and grill built in 1957, shows first-run double features nightly in warm weather. On weekend days, it's the site of Cape Cod's biggest flea market.
