Studio Movie Grill Announces Plans for a League City Location
The City of League City’s plan to establish an entertainment district, a place where families can eat, shop and play, is beginning to take shape. The plan is one step closer to reality today as Dallas-based Studio Movie Grill announced plans to build its twelfth location near League City’s Victory Lakes Town Center at the northeast corner of I-45 and Victory Lakes Drive.
“We are very pleased to welcome Studio Movie Grill to League City,” said Mayor Tim Paulissen. “The new theater is a win-win for our community, from the creation of new jobs, to a new attraction to shape our entertainment district, and a place within our own city where residents and visitors can enjoy dinner and a movie,” said Mayor Paulissen.
"Studio Movie Grill's plan is a great asset to our community, it could mean a 9 million dollar investment into League City, increased sales tax revenue and a great anchor to draw more businesses into the community," said Mike Loftin, League City City Manager.
Studio Movie Grill, the leader and pioneer of the movie-grill concept, offers visitors a state of the art movie and dining experience with the affordable luxury of a spacious auditorium, high-end lounge chairs and dining tables reminiscent of an upscale hotel lobby. It also offers an extensive menu of over 100 items from popcorn and candy to gourmet pizza and specialty cocktails.
“We couldn’t be more excited about bringing this expansion to the League City,” said Brian Schultz, SMG’s Founder and President. “We think our customers will be excited to see the major improvements we’ve made; enhancements to our brand that will ultimately be integrated into all our Texas locations."
One of those major improvements is Studio Movie Grill’s new 100% reserved seating model. “We don’t like waiting in line either, or race to make a show time,” said Schultz. Reserved seating will be available online, in advance or at the box office with tickets starting at $5.
The EAT. DRINK. MOVIES slogan and concept of Studio Movie Grill merges with the City’s plan to fashion the I-45 corridor into an active recreation and regional entertainment district that includes national-brand shopping, restaurants and complementary businesses. In addition to Studio Movie Grill, Jimmy Changas, part of the Houston-based restaurant group behind Gringo’s and Bullritos, has already broken ground on a new League City location near the proposed site of Studio Movie Grill near Victory Lakes Town Center.
