The Studio Movie Grill - Wheaton in Wheaton, Illinois opened to the public on Friday, June 8, 2012, according to a press release issued by the company. The new theater features first-run movies with in-theater dining and is the company's first midwest location.
Billed as "affordable luxury," the theater offers high-end lounge chairs and dining tables that they hope will evoke comparisons to an upscale hotel lobby. The press release describes the interior as "modern with a selective mix of textiles, stone surfaces, warm woods, and mid-century furniture."
“We understand consumers today are looking for ways to get more out of their entertainment experiences but spend less money and time,” said Studio Movie Grill founder and president, Brian Schultz who has spent more than 12 years refining the in-theater dining concept.
All eight auditoriums are equipped with Dolby 3D Digital Cinema Projection systems with seating for between 100-275 people. All seating is reserved, so you don't have to worry about standing in line and saving seats. Tickets are available online by going to their Showtimes page and clicking on the Showtimes that appear as links.
In addition to the luxurious surroundings the distinctive feature of the new theater is the expanded menu options that are available at your seat while you watch the movie. In addition to the usual candy and popcorn, customers can choose from over 100 menu items that include appetizers like spicy chicken wings, salads, gourmet pizzas, a kids menu, and desserts. Every table has a service button, where wait staff will take your order and deliver it without disturbing other customers. We've seen this concept in action at iPic Theaters at The Arboretum of South Barrington and it works very well.
Adults can take advantage of the fullp-service bar in the lobby that offers a large selection of beers, wines, and cocktails.
Studio Movie Grill - Wheaton is the company's ninth location in the United States.
