My family and I love Smitty's theater and have been numerous times - too many to count! We have always had a positive experience and never a complaint. The food is not fine dining cuisine, but is that what you are looking for when you are going to a movie? The set up of tables with large, computer-type, squishy, reclining... More

Don't get the food it's a waste of money. Depending on who makes your drink you might get a good one if you order mixed drinks, so if you want alcohol stick to beer. Servers are more concerned with social hour then service and management is practically non-existent. Only thing going for it is the movies.

We have a yearly family tradition of visiting my brother in Sanford, ME every Columbus Day weekend and Smitty's is part of that tradition. The service is great, the seating is comfy and the food is always decent. The movie ticket prices can't be beat either!

Food is all frozen prepackaged. Don't expect any gourmet meals here. I don't like the feelling that y ou have to buy something while watching the movie. And, of course, you don't, but that is uncomfortable since it is a "dinner and a movie theatre" Food is very costly.

Smittys in Sanford is close by and their show times are different but I prefer to go to biddeford. The ticket prices have been on the rise.. and the service and food have gone downhill. The bathrooms are nice though.

I really like Smitty's. The food is very good, which I honestly did not expect. Portions are great; usually take food home. The staff are great and attentive. There are many types of food and alcoholic beverages. The chairs are also very comfortable.

I have been here a couple of times. Each time it has been a pleasure. The food was surprisingly good and reasonably priced.
