Dinner and a Movie all in one

I like to come here whenever I want to catch a new release that I can't wait to come out in video. Love the fact that I can order some food and especially get a beer while enjoying the flick. Food is fair, nothing to rave about, but decent nonetheless. Glad to see that they have finally started... read more

Smitty's is the Drive in inside. It is a movie and better than drive in food. The place is comfortable with long tables and very comfortable chairs that can be reclined. People come early to get the perfect seats. The food, actually is pretty good. I have never had any complaint whatsoever. They serve appetizers, sandwiches, burgers meals and kids... More

We had a blast and we loved everything about this experience! The price was reasonable and the food was better than you would expect for a movie theater. The food and drinks are all named after movies, which added to the fun. The chairs were comfortable and swivel around which made eating dinner easier. The theater got darker than I... More

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.
