Starting with Great beers on tap and the best popcorn around (real butter and nutritional yeast) and ending with a great meal (including donuts and other great desserts). You can bring dinner into the theater or eat in a cozy cafe after. I love everything about this great community center.

We walked in for breakfast on a recommendation from someone staying at Sugarbush where we were attending a wedding.... the maple donuts had just come out and were warm on the counter. Since we had to wait a few minutes for a table, we were told to just have one - so delicious! Breakfast was hearty and great with huevos... More

Might be only movie theater you ever go to with dirt parking lot, back row of velvet love seats with pull up tables so you can eat a meal or have a beer that you can order from the attached cafe that has great menu, full bar, espresso machine, soda fountain, etc. while watching a movie. Great setting and cool... More

We arrived early and had drinks in the lounge area, which is rather quaint. Then we ordered dinner and ate it in the theater. The burgers were large and great tasting. The side salad with the burgers was also very tasty. We saw a first run movie. The theater is nothing fancy. It is nice to be able to enjoy... More

You've never had a breakfast sandwich like this before - roll was soft, eggs perfectly cooked, cheddar, and sausage - I've had plenty such sandwiches before but this is the best ever!! We live in NJ otherwise I would get this sandwich all the time.

We weren't sure what to expect, but were very pleased with the meals we had at this cafe. The crabcakes were some of the best I have ever had. For being in a small town it was very busy on a Saturday afternoon, but we still received great service!

We have just returned from an excellent evening at the Big Picture Theatre. I ate the mushroom ravioli and my husband ate the steak. We agreed that this was the best food we've had so far on our trip to New England. Don't expect luxury surroundings but be assured of friendly service and the best food at reasonable prices.

We were recommended the Big Picture cafe by a local and despite our skepticism driving in, we were delighted by the food! I cleaned my plate of a Turkey Melt that was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. My fiance enjoyed the BLT with avocado. The sandwiches were served on perfectly toasted honey wheat bread.... More

Great service. Excellent food. I had the fajitas with vegetables, outstanding. I had Shrimp with Lo Main noodles as an appetizer, It was my dinner. very tasty. Both of this dishes are appetizers, but is adequate for a meal.
