Brian Schultz and his chain of Studio Movie Grill theaters had their fair share of growing pains. The first major challenge the founder and chief executive officer faced was getting the Hollywood establishment to allow its first-run movies to be shown in his theaters. But these challenges strengthened his resolve to make the chain better and, today, it’s among the best in the niche
Studio Movie Grill continues to establish a reputation for comfortable and convenient movie-going experience, even a luxurious one in several locations.

Making a Difference in the Industry
Studio Movie Grill differentiates itself from its competitors by offering mainstream and alternative entertainment fare. The theaters show first-run movies from the Hollywood-based movie industry, as well as family-friendly and alternate programming. Surely, there’s always something great to enjoy on the large screen for you and your family and friends!
The chain also offers in-theater dining for customers who want the full film and food experience. The theaters have their own American-style grill restaurant with a full-service bar. Guests can place their order with one of the theater employees and have their orders delivered to their seats; every seat has a service button for this purpose. The orders can be made and delivered before and during the entirety of the movie, too, with no disruption whatsoever to the audience’s viewing pleasure.
Tickets can be purchased online via the official website or at the dedicated kiosks in the Studio Movie Grill theaters. Guests are encouraged to arrive early for their booked movies – the recommended time is 15 to 20 minutes – before the show time. While waiting for the show time, guests can enjoy snacks and drinks like cocktails for adults and soda for children in the lobby bar.
The theater personnel announces the start of seating. Guests can then get into the auditorium, find their seats, and settle in for the show. Again, in-theater service is available.
Studio Movie Grill offers its guests four types of seating depending on their personal preferences. Emphasis must be made that not all of these seating choices, however, are available in all locations.
- Table A and B seats come either in stationary chair style or desk-style chair. These seats share a table surface so these are great choices for couples and small groups.
- Countertop seats come with a desk-style chair choice and share counter space.
- Lounge seats offer a more spacious area for sitting, as well as a larger eating surface via the tray table. These come with stationary chairs.
- Reclining lounge seats can obviously be reclined. These come with a built-in tray table and stationary chair, too.
No matter which type of seating you choose, you will find that the theater’s layout is such that every guest has a comfortable view of the large screen for uninterrupted viewing.
Guests can reserve their preferred seats, too, when purchasing their tickets online. Again, guests are well-advised to come at least 15 minutes before the show so pre-admittance procedures, which include showing the conformation to the staff, can be done first. Reserve seating ensures that you will never show up for a fully-booked show time and be asked to come back at a later time.
Studio Movie Grill offers different types of tickets, too. Children’s tickets are for children 2-12 years old while adult tickets apply to people 13-64 years old. People 65 years old and above can avail of the discounted senior tickets.
Military personnel can avail of discounts by showing their valid identification, as is also the case for students 13 years old and up. Discounts may also be given on certain days, such as on Tuesdays when ticket prices drop to $5; the exception is for 3D movies that cost $8.
Movie listings and their show times are posted in the theaters and on the official website every Tuesday evening. The listings apply for the upcoming weekend until the following Thursday. Movies available for advanced booking are also posted, thus, allowing customers to reserve their tickets and seats for a highly anticipated event.
Note: Federal holidays and the like may delay the posting of the full schedule. Movie listings and their schedules can change without prior notice and explanation.
For groups of more than 20 people, we suggest advanced booking via the website’s events page. Studio Movie Grill welcomes purchases of group tickets but it’s important to notify the management to avoid any inconvenience, such as declined requests due to possible orphan seats.
The chain also accepts bookings for birthday parties, corporate events, and school functions, among others. Interested individuals should allow 24 to 48 hours for the management to respond to requests for booking.
