The tickets were five dollars (Tuesday), but the meal for 4 was $70.00 plus tip. The experience was great and the theater was very nice. The sound was an experience, way beyond Dolby surround sound. The food was ok but very pricey. Two for $25.00 plus drinks was excessive. Family of 4 came to $100.00 !

This is one of my favorite pass time places. The later the day the harder it is to find parking. Nice location in the highlands and very up to date. They have a big bar area with seating. The one down side is that it is extremely cold in there. Even if it's 100 outside it will be 55*. Now... More

While having special time with a family member, we opted to go to Studio Movie Grill yesterday. The seats are comfortable. The food taste has improved, though it is expensive. The serving sizes are overall small. The specials are something to consider. The service is really slow....really , really slow and that's disappointing.

First, I'm fine with the theater wanting to upcharge if you use a Groupon during prime time but that notice should be more prominent than in the fine print. The cashier acted like she couldn't possibly have cared less. Second, when we went to our seats there was tomato sauce all over one of them but we noticed too late... More

I was really looking forward to going here. I had been to the one in Plano and knew the service was a little slow but this one was really bad. First, it took forever to order. My husband got up and went to the bar to get our drinks while we waited to be waited on! Then after we ordered... More

Was staying in Arlington Highlands recently for WrestleMania weekend and we had some downtime on a Monday afternoon and as this was just around the corner from our hotel we decided to catch a movie ( Batman vs Superman ). It was certainly convenient to grab lunch at the same time and we don't have anything like this in Buffalo... More

Love the seats where a table tray swings in/out from you. The counter top seats are old and tattered leather office chairs. The large popcorn comes with free refills. You can ask for small, extra bowls to split the popcorn with your family. The drinks have free refills. BUT the service is hit or miss, it's either good or REALLY... More

The prices keep going up yet they offer no reasons for it. The honey crust pizza is the only thing decent to eat. Beer selection is horrible compared to other movie houses. We will make the ride to Alamo from now on.

Food and service are subpar compared to pretty much any other full service movie theater I have been to. It is so close to my house I have been on multiple occasions and regret it every time. If you are just seeing the movie and having a soda sure it is fine, but if you want drinks and food don't... More

We had no problem getting 9 seats together by buying online a week before our movie. Ticket prices were competitively priced. Food prices are about the same as other dine-in theatres. Plan ahead. Arrive early to find parking. Our food and service was good, except for the pizza my son ordered. Adult beverages are available.
