Overall the food is usually excellent . Service is good but can be a little but slow at times. I have eaten breakfast and lunch there on several occasions. Love the local offerings! Would have to say it is my favorite breakfast spot in the valley and one of my favorite lunch spots!

We caught a show at this place - really different and very comfortable. Nice little bar and sandwich type restaurant where you get food and drink to bring into the theater.

I loved this theatre and have gone there many times but I don't think I'll go again. I get the impression that they don't have enough people working for them, because if you order something at the counter, plates are put down and people just walk away to do/serve someone else. I think that this causes problems in terms of... More

My husband, daughter and I went to see a movie here. Low and behold you can actually sit at a couch and have your food and drinks from the adjacent restaurant served to you so that you can enjoy them while watching a movie on the big screen! A really neat experience.

We were in VT for a wedding and ended up joining friends for brunch here 3 days in a row. The breakfast slider & breakfast burrito were big winners with the group! Be warned it's small and service can take a while if they're busy.

Desperately needed a powerpoint for laptop, they set me up - great local beer brews. Also showed me around the Cinema, which is something to see. Very friendly.

The Big Picture Theater is the only movie theater in the Mad River Valley; we are very fortunately to have it. The theater shows current blockbuster hits plus art/historic/special interest movies. There are 3 separate small theaters, except for holidays it is never crowded. The best part of your experience is having a drink and/or dinner watching a movie. Their... More

Food was very good. We were going to go to the movies and it turned out that the theater was closed due to a private event. Would have been nice to know beforehand (like before we actually bought the tickets!)

The staff were helpful and welcoming whilst the food was variable - the turkey sandwich was very nice but the French toast very bland, a little burnt and lacking in egg coating so a definite miss. The fountain drinks were expensive considering that no refills were offered. Took some of their famous donuts home - not impressed as they lacked... More
