Studio Movie Grill has opened new theatres in Chatham, Illinois, Colleyville, Texas, The Colony, Texas and Tyler, Texas; more sites are currently in the works. Since 2000 the company has grown to 16 locations and 158 screens in seven states.
"Studio Movie Grill is excited to be expanding and to be on the forefront of enormous growth in our segment of the movie exhibition industry," said Brian Schultz, CEO. "We are always seeking new ways to provide the guest with a relaxing, no-rush experience in an appealing environment, coupled with the best technology, dedicated service and a continually evolving, eclectic menu."
SMG's newest Dallas-area location, SMG Colleyville, is set to open in April. The 51,935-square foot establishment will be an upscale social destination, encompassing eight screens and over 1,000 seats.
In The Colony, a 10-screen, 40,000-square foot location will bring the total number of SMG screens to 176. The theatre will seat 1,300 and is scheduled to open before year's end.
A complete remodeling and modernization will bring the existing Chatham 14 Theatre in Chicago in line with today's SMG brand identity. With a completion date of May, SMG Chatham will boast 13 screens and 1,400 seats, along with a modern lounge and lobby area and an exciting, contemporary menu.
SMG Tyler will add an additional 10 screens. The 42,000-square foot theatre will seat 1,400 and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2015.
The four newest additions to the SMG family will offer casual dining and lounge areas for socializing before or after the main feature and dinner. Definitive touch points will be reflected in every location, as SMG refines its architectural and design elements to achieve a consistent identity.
"The Studio Movie Grill is so much more than movies," said Schultz. "We offer one-stop destinations for dining, entertainment, and a welcoming place to meet with friends and family. We're a great choice for both special occasions and a simple night out. SMG is excited to transform the typical cinema experience and offer a community gathering place alongside dinner and a movie."
