Smitty’s has never claimed to be an ordinary theater. They have popcorn, slushies and screens, but they also have pizza, fries, beer and comfortable chairs…and they’re coming to Windham.

“Most is done. We have to wrap up the details and clean up,” said Smitty’s partner and manager Tucker Smith about the progress at the Windham Mall location.

Beginning April 9, Smitty’s will have a soft opening. By April vacation the theater will be running at full capacity, ready for their grand opening celebration.

“Smitty’s Cinema, where you can grab a burger and a beer while watching the latest blockbuster movie, will open a new location in Windham in April after a $1.5 million renovation of the recently closed Windham 5-Star Cinema.

Dream Home – If I Lived Here

Feb/Mar 2010

“The house I lived in for almost 30 years was rustic and rough and built by hand. Literally. It had wide Pine floorboards and beams we dismantled from an old Aroostook County Barn, its bones still strong and resilient although its cedar shingles had given out long ago.

If I were asked to pull out the crayons and color that first home, I would use all the brown shades – Tan, Almond, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Mahogany, Chestnut and all of them speak of Earth and toasted bread to me.
