Opening January 2014, the first Ohio SMG will mark the company’s 15th location
DALLAS, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Studio Movie Grill (SMG) Arena Grand will open in the Arena District of Columbus in mid-January 2014 and marks the first Ohio location for SMG and its 15th location in the US. The SMG Arena Grand opening is a part of a continuing strategic expansion plan for the Dallas based exhibitor. Formerly occupied by the Arena Grand Movie Theater, the existing location is undergoing a major conversion to the SMG concept including a full commercial kitchen, VIP stadium seating, and a two story bar and lounge addition. SMG looks forward to welcoming local patrons to its wide range of American grill menu items, premium beverage selection, and immersive viewing experience.
“Columbus is the perfect city for the movie grill concept and the Arena District presented an ideal location for SMG expansion plans. We can’t wait to introduce ourselves to our new community. Alternate programming, outreach and special events will be a major focus alongside first-run movies because we appreciate that consumers today are looking for unique ways to get more from their entertainment experiences,” said Brian Schultz, Studio Movie Grill CEO, founder and owner.
