“my first time i ever saw.....”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Most of my movie going experience has been limited to eaither drive in movie places when i was young to theaters which you go buy some popcorn a drink maybe some snow caps then walk into the theatre pick a seat and watch the movie. That all changed when i took my fiancee to see godzilla at reel cinimas on our first night in bar harbor. We whent to see the 8:30 pm show, on the outside it looks like the typical theater but with very limited parking, we found a spot in the police dept parking area which is a 1minute walk to the theater. Inside my first responce was what a small lobby, we orderd some popcorn and sodas but i also noticed two other unique diffrences in this theater that i had never seen, here you can have a pizza made and you can buy a cup of beer. So i looked around for some tables on where to eat your pizza which there was none. Once inside i was surprised to see how things here are set up, each section of movie theatre seats has a stomach level bench so you can put your pizza ( which comes on a pizza pan not in a box ) to eat, also in back of the room is a small station with some condiments for pizza or pop corn and a pitchre of ice water. Down frount are 3 couches and tv trays if you wish to not sit on the typical movie theater seats. This place it seams is a hit with the local kids which were more of them then adults were, they were quiet and well manerd hats off to there parents for raising well respected children. There was an intermission so you could restock on soda or pop corn ( the large popcorn comes in a large square plastic bowel but you cannot take it home with you ) the theatre was clean and the movie was fantastic.

“Amazing. Simply, Amazing.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This place is a real GEM. You can get a fantastic pizza, with different crust options (Whole wheat, gluten free, regular) and a wide variety of toppings. They also serve beer and a good selection at that. You can sit on a comfy couch or good seats. You put in an order for you pizza and they give you a buzzer so you can watch the movie until its ready. They have intermission too so you can refill your drinks!! One of my FAVORITE places in the entire town. They change the movies often so you can go back frequently. Plus, it is only 6$! Only thing to remember is the tickets have to be paid for in cash- but you can purchase food and drinks with credit.

“Yay!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Not a lot to do in Bar Harbor at night, so we decided to try this out after reading about it here. We made sure to get there about a half hour before show time to put in our pizza order, grabbed some comfy seats, and enjoyed a reasonably priced meal and an even more reasonably priced movie. Build your own pizza,

“Fun way to watch movie”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

For a change of pace from the outdoors we stopped here one night on our trip. Was a fun little setup - counters for eating pizza or even couches with TV trays. Order pizza in lobby (novelty choices as well as traditional build your own) and then your electronic pizza slice buzzes when your pizza is ready. Then you are all set to enjoy your food with the movie. Pizza good. There were two movie choices when visited. Would be excellent for a rainy day.

“Fun way to watch a movie in Bar Harbor”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Went here to kill an evening and watch a show. Pizza is average and the theater is showing the age but you will have some fun.
