Love the idea, and this facility is really nice! Servers are friendly. However, food quality is important in a place like this and they just dont have it. I think the popcorn is not made fresh on site. It taste like it comes from a box or something; very weird flavor. I expect their food to be a bit more... More

I recently visited the theater to see Planet of the Apes with a few friends of mine. The facility was very modern with room to visit with people in the lobby, plus a full service bar. The actual theater has very comfortable leather stadium seats with more than enough leg room to stretch and relax. Both the staff and the... More

I'm a big fan of this concept. I love going to Muvico, Icon, Hollywood Blvd, etc. so I was happy when this opened in the former Linen and Things/CiCi's space. The prices for this type of theater are very reasonable...and even cheaper if you go late at night (after 10) or go to any of their special movie series $2... More

The food and drinks are not bad but it gets a little annoying having someone pass in front of you during the movie.

Food, Drink, and a Movie. They do have a bar, and their drinks are very good. They do play all the newest movies, and it's very clean and a cool atmosphere. However their food tastes like it's frozen and they put it in a microwave. Their cheeseburgers the buns are hard, however their Pizza is pretty good. Also the food... More

I've tried the various local theaters that offer dinner and a movie and this one is the best. the service during the movie is fabulous and the food is mostly pretty good. One complaint is the popcorn seems to be a bit stale tasting, but the actual food is good. I especially love the assigned seating so that you don't... More

From the seats to the food Studio Movie Grill is the best theater hands down. The food and drink selection is exceptional and having waiters makes watching a movie something special.

We recently visited SMG on two occasions in March, and were pleasantly suprised to see there had been improvements to the menu and the quality of food since our last visit here more than 6 months ago. Food was served hot and fresh (unlike our prior experiences) and the menu has some great specials each night of the week. Don't... More

Since SMG arrived in Wheaton, my husband and I haven't seen a movie anywhere else. We love that we can reserve our favorite seats ahead of time which means we never have to arrive two hours before a popular show just to be sure we aren't seated in the first row. We love the food also - so much so... More

SMG has first run movies with a bar in the lobby and food service in the theater. You can pre-select your seats on-line and decide where to sit. The food is pretty good for what you would expect in a multi-use facility. Unfortunately, sometimes the service can be spotty. They use a team approach which works great sometimes and not... More
