Th-Eatery Defined

Colleyville's Studio Movie Grill has the concept of 'dinner and a movie' down to a science.

By Gina Tagliarino

So, you want to plan the perfect date night? There’s always dinner, then a movie. Or, you could try something a little different — a movie, with dinner. Studio Movie Grill has made a name for itself based off this innovative concept since opening its first location in Addison 14 years ago. Offering moviegoers an all-in-one destination to enjoy a night out with friends, family or a loved one has been a growing trend ever since. The in-theater dining experience came to Colleyville in the spring as part of its nationwide expansion plan. The ninth location in Texas, Studio Movie Grill Colleyville has more than 51,000 square feet, eight screens and more than 1,000 seats ready for your next outing— much more than a typical night at the movies. A perfect example is that the typical snack bar has been replaced with sophisticated lounge areas complete with a full-service bar boasting 60 premium spirits, local microbrews and an array of complex cocktails like the movie inspired Deep Eddy 007 Martini and the Salted Caramel Martini— think Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Butterscotch Schnapps, Caramel and Chocolate— yum!

The atmosphere is more than relaxing, especially after you realize there is no need to rush to grab a seat, because it was reserved when you got your tickets, just like a typical dinner reservation. Once seated, take advantage of the recently updated menu that features artistic dishes such as the blackened Mahi-Mahi Tacos with curried rice, black beans, cabbage, peppers in a Honey Teriyaki sauce. Or try the citrus marinated jumbo shrimp or the mouth watering Ceviche Lettuce Wraps. They also have comfort food staples like chicken tenders, gourmet pizzas and hamburgers made to order. No need to press pause during this movie — each seat comes with a personal service button, which lights up to let servers know when you’re ready to place an order or just need a refill. Ahh — that’s more like it — all that’s left to do is to sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Just don’t forget to tip the wait staff.
