Smitty's expands to include new theater - By Michelle Libby

Less than a year after they opened Smitty’s Cinema is expanding into what was the storage area for Big Lots which moved out at the beginning of the year. 
“Business is good, doing well. We’ve been very pleased,” manager Tucker Smith said.

When Tucker and his uncle Milton Smith opened Smitty’s, they had planned to expand to have more seating, since the configuration with tables cuts the seats by half of what they were in the old theater.

“We never believed Big Lots would leave within a year,” Tucker said. The new eighth theater will be the largest at Smitty’s on taking up 3,000 square feet and seating 170 people. At this time, the largest theater holds 115 people. “It will be configured so we can run live events in there, but mostly our new films. We hope to turn away less people,” he said. 

Construction starts next week and will be completed in three months or so, according to Tucker.
