Dallas, TX: Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley Opens Today

Posted on Friday, October 12th, 2012 2:14 PM by Scott Jentsch

Studio Movie Grill logoThe Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley in Dallas, Texas opened today, October 12, 2012. To celebrate the theater's opening, they are offering $1 movie tickets all weekend, from 10/12-10/14/2012. Alternately, you can bring in a canned good and receive a free movie ticket.

To see what's playing at the new 12-screen theater, please see their Showtimes page. They do provide online ticketing, so you can purchase your tickets online and save the wait at the box office. (I just checked and the tickets are also $1 online, plus the service charge)

The theater's opening is delayed from the September timeframe that they mentioned when the opening was announced in July, but two weeks late isn't too bad for a project as complex as a movie theater that also offers in-theater dining.

Located near the intersection of US 75 and Spring Valley Road, the new theater is less than a 3.5 mile drive from the Studio Movie Grill - Dallas / Royal to the South. About four miles to the West is the AMC Valley View 16 as well, so it will have some competition for the hearts, minds, and most importantly, the wallets of the moviegoing public. Why there are two Studio Movie Grills in such close proximity is a puzzle, but there's probably some logic that escapes the casual observer.

If you go to the Studio Movie Grill - Spring Valley, please let us know what you thought of the experience by leaving a message on its Reader Comments page!

I frequent all of the Studio Movie Grills often and was excited to go to the newest location. The parking lot is well lit and I loved the new decor....that's where "it" stopped!

When we sat down, we notice there were quite a few waiters lights on, for service. We made it about 15 minutes prior to the previews and not one server came in until after the previews! I had never experience the lack of service at any other Studio Movie Grill.

I liked the stadium seating, however the trays (attached to the chairs) open up like 2nd grade desk. Fortunately my fiance and I had empty seats next to us, because we had to use the adjoining chairs to seat our food and drinks. If you order more than one item, I had a small salad and crab cakes, there were no room for my drink.

Now for the service. My fiance order a Studio Movie Grill Blue Swirl Frozen Margarita. He received a small house margarita instead. We both ordered our food at the same time and prior to the patrons that came in after us. My fiance received his drink & food (although it was incorrect) and the other patrons recieved theirs. I only recieved my items after I inquired 3 times to servers, then finally left the theater and found a manager. This meant I miss part of the movie!

The manager comp the drinks, which was not much consolation. I'll NEVER go to this location again!
