My daughter and two granddaughters had a great time here. Great price for tickets and refreshments. Seats are comfortable, theater is clean. The only problem was one of the 4 movie theaters is up a fairly step set of stairs, I am disabled and there is no way I could have made it up the stairs. The movie we were seeing was on first floor so it was not a problem for me. I did not inquire about an elevator.

I've been coming here since I was a child and have always loved the Nostalgia of this place. It's downtown Smithfield right on the corner, the prices are cheap, and the food is awesome!

Had a great time! My mom loved it. Brought back a lot of memories for her. She remembered so many things that were going on at the time. Displays were excellent.

The Howell Theater is in the center of Smithfield, just off the main street. Parking appears to be street parking only, although we were traveling on a Wednesday, and since there was parking directly in front of the theater, we didn't look further for a parking lot!

We purchased tickets at the refreshment counter, which appeared to have all the movie staples - popcorn, candy, and Twizzlers :).

The seating was VERY comfortable - cushy, bucket seats, like the kind in a sports car, with high backs to support your head.

The theater was small - narrow and long - but the screen was high-def, and the sound was outstanding! In fact, the sound was SO good, that the music from Bohemian Rhapsody in the next theater was a bit distracting in the Instant Family comedy that we were enjoying. It wasn't problematic enough to leave or complain, just noticeable.

This was a nice change from the gigantic mega theaters. I enjoyed seeing a local theater still in operation!

This theater is very reminiscent of a small town movie house from several decades ago. It is modern in every sense but due to its location and layout is like stepping back in time. They offer a wide variety especially for children and family entertainment. The snack bar is terrific! Check it out the next time you want to see a movie. You won't be disappointed!

This walk in theatre was here in 1954 when I moved to Smithfield. It has been modernized and still presents the best in local entertainment and enjoyment.
