Was looking forward to this movie theater, but you had to wait outside in the rain before you can be admitted to your movie. You literally cannot wait in the theater lobby. The strangest thing I have ever seen. Once we got outside we were told we were standing too close to the door and the guy literally walked outside and drew an imaginary line with his hand and said "please dont go past the edge of the window," as he brushed his arm across my body to make me move back. It was only my family and I in line and at that point we openly laughed at him asking if he was kidding and he said "no." Someone would make a killing in Bar Harbor if they would open up a real movie theater. Customer service is extremely lacking. Would not recommend.
Place is simply awesome to me- you can get pizza and beer while watching a movie, how are you going to beat that? Think theyre year round, Im always up very early or late in the season and their doors are open. Like the High Plains Drifter and Godzilla pizzas, but our favorite is a seasonal goat cheese and basil pizza. Snacks here are pretty good too. Movies have intermissions half way through so you can use the bathroom, refill your drink, or get more snacks. Gets VERY busy during tourist season. Seating is old movie theater seats with counters in front for your food/drink, front rows are couches/chairs and TV trays, not for everyone but plenty of people come to enjoy. I come by every time Im there.
I have been here many times to see movies like Mockingjay Part 1, or Minions. They have friendly staff, and they serve pizza that you can order, with funky flavors like High Plains Drifter and Play It Again, Sam. They have sofas that you can sit on at the front row, or 4 chairs in one row with a table. Their are a couple of drawbacks, like 1. Sometimes it can take 1 month for movies to reach here and 2. They dont offer 3-D. Other than that, this is a must-have experience for tourists or locals alike! I rate this 5 stars.
My girlfriend was scared after watching the first 5 minutes of a movie as she gets anxiety and has nightmares after such films and we decided to ask for our money back. They had no written policy and the manager refused only because he didnt want to. I work in the customer service industry and will do almost anything to make sure the customer keeps coming back for business but in this case i wont be returning since they had no policy in place and could refund our money since we consumed none of their product.
Reel Pizza is highly commendable. This independent family-owned cinema serves delicious pizza and tap beer. The screenings have a ten minute intermission, reminiscent of early cinemas. Seating is flexible as it is comfortable: heavy lounge chairs, sofas, and wool pillows make the viewing experience much more enjoyable than chain cinemas which focus more on accommodating as many costumers as possible. Reel Pizza also offers a diverse selection of movies, from independent, mainstream, and recent releases.
The best place to enjoy a movie to its fullest: amazing pizza and solid beer/wine selection, plus just cool locals who own and run the place. Also, I might add, their film selection is on point! Not only do they show the biggest features but they also show the really cool independent films that make you really excited to go to a theater to see it. I wish there were more cinemas like this around. I always miss Reel Pizzas chill ambience and delicious pies when Im at any other cinema. Love this place!

The lobby is a little crunched if youre waiting to get into your movie and others are trying to order but once youre in the theater you have plenty of room to sit comfortably and eat at your leisure during the show. We didnt know about the BINGO board when we first got there but we figured it out after a bit and got our amazing pizza in a decent amount of time. The pizza was perfectly cooked and a very generous amount of toppings were on it. The movie was lame but that wasnt their fault!
This is a favorite stop on every Acadia visit. Before there was Cinema de Luxe, there was Reel Pizza. Usually second-run or indie films for a cheap price ($6!) with decent pizza. While theyre still up, I miss the bingo boards being used to call your order number. Was kind of the quaintness of it all. Oh, and be advised that there is an intermission halfway through the movie. Seems to catch me by surprise each time, but the older I get the more I appreciate it!
What a fantastic place! So glad the local lady at our hotel recommended it. Pizza ordered, drinks in hand, we went into the small cinema with comfy sofa style chairs (in twos for lovebirds), movie started then our number lit up on the wall monitor so we knew that our pizzas were ready. Break in the middle of the film for top ups, further orders and a visit to the loo then we were back on track! A unique (and quirky!?) experience we will not forget easily!
Must have been an off night, because they forgot to make our pizza.... How do you even do that? Its all we ordered. Anyway, they gave us the pizza for free, but it still feels like a let-down. A pizza shouldnt take more than fifteen minutes, much less fifty. Ill be skipping their to-go options now and will only be ordering food from here when I also catch a movie.
Reel Pizza is a wonderful venue to watch a movie together with a slice of delicious home-made pizza. You can sit in comfortable chairs with tables for food or enjoy the movie from a sofa upfront. The staff are lovely and helpful. You can count on the movie selection being interesting at all times. Its a must-visit place in Bar Harbor.
Really fun little movie theater. The pizza is good and it was neat to see a place this small showing more independent films. The only downside is that the front row of couches are very close to the screen. We ended up moving to the back so we could sit somewhere with a built in shelf for our food.
We locals love this funky movie theater. It shows independent and foreign movies, not only Hollywood blockbusters. It serves the best pizza in town, and it is open almost year-round. And, other than one earlier reviewer claims - it has two screens, not only one.
Its a very fun place to take a break from all the other things in Acadia. Really good pizza. Pretty decent value for the dollar. We went on the closing night of a movie and it seemed exceptionally busy and lines took a long time.
Pizza was overpriced, dry and flavorless. $15 for the pizza you can get for $1 in NYC. Cashier had messed up my order so I had to wait 25 min for a fruit salad. Intermission for 1.5h movie was unnecessary. Wont go again.
This is a wonderful place for families! We had a great time here. Prices are the best! Good is very good and a great value. If you have time for a movie while in town, I recommend stopping in for dinner and a movie.
Great thin-crust pizza, local beers on tap, salads and homemade cookie, always exactly the films I want to see, friendly staff, and couches! Show up very early to get a ticket, a seat, and your pie before the lines.
