Family Movies at Studio Movie Grill


Now that my boys are a little bit older, one of our favorite things to do all together is to go to the movies. Granted my youngest one enjoys the popcorn as much or more than the movie, but still it's a great family outing.

Recently we've visited the Studio Movie Grill twice - once to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the other time to see Earth to Echo. We even got adventurous and went to two different Studio Movie Grill locations. For TMNT we went to the Spring Valley location in Richardson. That's where I grew up and before it was a Studio Movie Grill that's actually the theater I saw my first movie EVER in! LOL

They've done a good job of converting the theater over and it is equipped with a full bar and restaurant. If you remember the old days of Studio Movie Grill, you'll note that the swiveling office chairs and countertop tables are long gone. Instead, they've been replaced with plush theater seats with small table tray that can be moved out of your way when you're done. On top of that, the Ninja Turtle movie was "Excellent!" It didn't hurt that it was also a huge flashback for us adults. We all grew up on the turtles, and it was fun to share that with our kids.

When we went to see Earth to Echo we happened to be across town so we went to the SMG location in Dallas off of Northwest Highway. We were super excited to see how really nice and plush the theater was here. The seats were extra cushioned and able to lean back. We had a ton more room than what you normally have in a theater, and our particular showing we had our choice of seats. The good news is that no matter what theater you go to or what showing you attend, you get to pick your seats out when you purchase your tickets. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that I don't have to go to the theater super early and sit there with the whole crew just to get good seats.

We will most definitely be returning to the Studio Movie Grill the next time we want to go to the movie as a family  . . . or as a date.

I was provided with tickets for my family in order to facilitate this review.
