Unfortunately I was not impressed. Here's why:
Feb. 2020
While the help was pleasant, clean-cut and professional and courteous, it didnt make up for the theater itself. Basically you got some fancy "Office Chairs" on wheels with cheap-ish little side tables in clusters. The floor levels and seating is far too low for the screen. The chairs have no recline position, only a rocking motion back which you could lean back into, but not really much there to speak of. No foot rests. The idea of food served while you watch a movie is novel, and I was not sure how that would play out in a theater setting. It just doesn't impress. Due to the idea of food being delievered to audience members during a movie the lighting is kept at a level brighter than most normal theaters during the feature. In addition to this visual distraction, the muching and crunching and coughing and sneezing by others seems to be far more prevalent, even in a 1/2 full theater than in a normal cinema. The interruption of the staff were not as bad as I might have expected though.

Bottom line, don't expect to get too focused on the film you're watching. If you're one of "those" people who can't sit still and get into a movie without getting up, talking, eating, etc etc, then yuou will likely love this theater concept. On the other hand, if you like to focus on a move and are the type of person who can easily get dialed into a film 100% and don't appreciate unwanted distractions, this arrangement will most likely disappoint.

Film projection and sound was easily satisfactory with no visible image problems or sound problems. Audio system was also satisfactory, but I have definitely heard better sound systems with much better dynamics in "regular" theaters.

Fun Cinema Experience
Jul. 2019
We go to Smitty's at least once every few months, assuming there are good movies to watch and we want an unhealthy bite to eat. The menu used to be better and had lower fat options like Caesar Wrap, etc. My kids make me sit in the way front because the chairs recline. They hate the other chairs as do I because they roll around and are not comfortable. So I live with watching the movie really close. If we don't want food we go to Regal because the seats are more comfortable.

Dinner Theater to watch “Simba”.
Jul. 2019 • Couples
The movie cinema had two different types of seating. The chairs are completely different but both very comfortable. In hide site, we should have moved much closer to the screen because it is raised very high from the floor. We sat in the second seating group and we were to far from the screen. This was a mistake .

The food should be improved. We left feeling ill with stomach problems and didn’t finish our food.

There was only four people in the theater. This cinema has much opportunity. It’s location is very good.

Great place to see a movie and get full menu table service

The layout is different to other cinemas that serve food in the theater, but it actually is quite functional. Chairs are not fixed but rather almost like really comfortable executive office chairs with rollers, that made watching the movie comfortable and easy to access your food or get up. Service was very good and food was decent, although the desserts were excellent.

Tuesdays are best

Love $5 Tuesdays, prices are average high other times. Food is just OK. Very much dislike the fact that they do not dim the theater while the movie is playing-bring a baseball cap.

Beer, food, servers, first run movies and comfy chairs , what’s not to like? Smitty’s was clean with good service. We had a great time and I hope to return the next we’re visiting the area.

Great experience!

My partner and I attended a showing of A Quiet Place on a Sunday evening.. the same opening weekend as Avengers Infinity War. Thankfully we didn’t have to compete with the crowds to see our movie!

We arrived an hour early and had the choice of any table. Our waiter was quick, friendly, and helpful. We ordered a side of chips and salsa, the Iron Man burger, and the Pesto Paradiso sandwich. The food was delicious!

One thing I like about Smittys is that the waiters/waitresses don’t bother you much during the movie. It’s hard to maintain focus on something if you’re being interrupted. When he brought the check, it was very quietly and toward a slow point in the movie.

The price for two adult tickets was $19. This is a bit cheaper than Regal. If you’re looking to have dinner while watching a movie, this is the place to go. The food is pretty good too.

On a side note, the bathrooms were very clean!

Comfortable
Dec. 2017 • Friends
I do not like going to movie theaters. They are crowded and uncomfortable. Smitty’s has changed all that for me. There is enough room so you don’t feel packed into an area with a bunch of other people. The chairs are very comfortable. I’m surprised I didn’t fall asleep.
We had nachos and fries. These were just so so. Service was very good though.
I will definitely go again but will probably eat in Brunswick before the movie.
