I don't know if they have new management or aren't making enough money to keep thing up but this location is not what it used to be. On 2 recent visits 2 weeks apart the food was awful. I don't know how you screw up a desert but what I was served was awful and it wasn't even my first... More

This was about our 10th visit & most recent was for Star Wars. With so many theaters doing renovations, I thought SMG deserved a great review. The food & service was fantastic! While their seats don't recline like some of the other theaters (although still very comfortable) their food & service make the difference!

Went yesterday with my husband to see Star Wars. He had gone with our son last week and really liked it (movie and studio). The concept is great-I just think it is better executed at somewhere like the AMC theatre in Lombard. So the great part was walking into a very comfortable "adult" space. Stopped at the bar for a...

I used to like this place. They have this ridiculous rule about not leaving an empty space between seats. Used to be able to deal with it. However, when you get stuck with a DIRTY & BROKEN seat more often than not and you want to move down one, you should be able to. Even after to mention your predicament,... More

I decided to take my daughter to see Creed especially since it was based on the movie Rocky. The atmosphere was great and the food and drinks awesome. The first person we had to serve us was amazing the second one needs more training on customer communication

We usually Netflix our movies, but when it's a film meant for the big screen, this is the theater we go to! Reserve your seats on line so no waiting in line. The seats are very comfy and spread out. And the food is surprisingly good!

I don't like the idea that when you go to SMG and have a drink at the bar they CHARGE your card three times the amount ?? Whats up with that !

The Studio Movie Grill is definitely the way to watch a movie, in the lap of luxury! The theater is immaculately clean, and due to the fact that servers are waiting on you while you're watching your movie, the aisles & seats themselves are ample and spacious. (Even if not going to eat, I would still see a movie at... More

I love that you can pick your seat before you buy tickets and they will be reserved for you. Now there is no need to arrive early for a good seat. The food and drink options are much better than most theaters and so are the prices. Everything is ordered and brought to you at your seat without waiting in... More

I like the ability to reserve my seats ahead of time, so I don't have to get there early to get my favorite seats. The seats are comfy for movie watching. The servers are quick and do not take away from the movie watching experience. I normally get the meal deal for 2.
