I absolutely love going to the movies. I don’t think I realized just how much I loved going to the movies until I had kids and couldn’t go to the movies whenever I wanted. I love the whole experience: the theater, the popcorn, even the previews.

Studio Movie Grill

 As a long time resident of the north side of Indianapolis, I was really excited to hear that there was a new theater moving into the location that I knew as the Movie Buff theater. I was even more excited when I found out the name of the new theater was Studio Movie Grill. Since the nearby Cinema Grill closed, there hasn’t been anywhere local where you could eat dinner and see a movie.  It’s the little things like being able to have a meal and watch a movie on the big screen at the same time that make me happy.


Our Experience


We had our first chance to try out Studio Movie Grill on a chilly Friday when our outdoor plans were rained out. When I walked in, I couldn’t believe I was in the same theater  – Studio Movie Grill is gorgeous and completely updated. When we got our tickets, we were able to pick the exact seats we wanted; all the theaters offer reserved seating.

We found our seats and ordered our food. Studio Movie Grill has an extensive menu, and the prices are comparable to a “sit-down” restaurant. My sandwich was delicious and the oldest devoured his pizza. If you’re just looking to see a movie, that’s not a problem! There’s no minimum food purchase required.

We loved the food, we loved the movie, and we had a really good experience. There were a couple of mistakes with our order, but I was really impressed with how things were handled. Our bill was adjusted and we were given two free movie passes. The service was first rate for our whole visit; literally every employee we passed greeted us with a smile. We’ll definitely be back.


Movies With a Twist


The thing that excites me most about Studio Movie Grill is all of their special programming. Just check out the Twist section of their website – they offer things like Girl’s Night Out, Brews ‘N Views, and a Saturday Toons Series, all with low ticket prices. They have special needs screenings of new children’s movies, which are FREE for special needs kids and their siblings.
