bay area expansion - John Cumbelich &

bay are a ex pans ion
At Studio Movie Grill (SMG), we’ve modernized the traditional movie-going
experience by combining first-run movies with full-service, in-theater dining.
We’ve become an industry leader by delivering the latest movies and
alternate programming, alongside an American Grill menu, full service bar,
and friendly service at the push of a button.
Whether you’re visiting us for this season’s biggest blockbuster, taking in a
family feature, or hosting a private event, SMG has something for everyone.
I am 100% sure
these theaters
are the future of

studio movie grill
exists to open hearts
and minds one
story at a time.™
Movies are one of the most
powerful storytelling mediums
in today’s society. They trigger
a memory or an emotion, take
us on a transformative journey
that shapes our worldview, or
introduce us to the complexities
and highlights of the human
condition. Perhaps as important as the movies we watch
are the memories we create
while sharing a meal together.
We believe that what a brand
does matters more than what
it says. Our commitment to
quality, value, and a memorable movie grill experience is
for all of our stakeholders and
we honor this commitment
during every showtime for
movie-goers of all ages.
This is the only
theater I go to. If I’m
already going out for
dinner, why not do it
at the same time?
SMG Guest Review,
We unify our brand voice through
theater architecture and design,
on-screen offerings and facility
capabilities, operational excellence,
and our unique market positioning.
This experience begins online and
is communicated throughout every
guest touch point in-theater.
Our theaters feature custom-made,
luxury VIP recliners and rocker-type
stadium style seating ensures that
every seat is the best seat in the
house. The latest digital projection
and sound systems provide an
unmatched cinema experience.
Guests can enjoy dining from our
freshly-prepared American Grill
menu in our lounge, at our fullservice bar, or in-theater anytime
during the show, at the push of a
button. The menu at SMG includes
something for everyone — specials,
drinks, starters, salads, entrées,
pizzas, desserts, brunch and a kid’s
Since 2000, Dallas-based SMG has swiftly grown to 24 locations and 244
movie screens in 9 states. As the leader in in-theater dining exhibition, we’re
excited for the opportunity to develop and begin a major expansion initiative,
with plans for additional sites throughout the country and remodels of several

exterior design
The appearance of a Studio Movie Grill consists of the trademark SMG
signage along with its signature SMG blue entry. The storefront entry area
is anchored with our tagline: Eat, Drink, Movies while poster cases flank the
entry with current and upcoming features. Finish materials include stucco,
aluminum, glazing, and masonry that can complement the center in which
the theater is located.
interior design
The interiors are modern in design with a selective mix of textiles, stone
surfaces, warm-woods, and modern furniture classics. Auditoriums feature
custom-made, luxury VIP recliners and rocker-type seating that enhances
the dine-in theater experience. Christie DLP-powered projectors, Dolby 3D
systems and Q-SYS sound systems provide a state of the art movie viewing
kitchen design
The Heart of the House is a state of mind that informs the kitchen design and
provides the means for our American Grilled Menu to be freshly prepared
and made to order. The kitchen is capable of serving over 1,000 meals an
hour during peak times. All equipment is NSF approved and provides a safe
and efficiently laid out for our Team and a great environment to work.
