Studio Movie Grill will reopen its newest location, SMG Chisholm Trail in Fort Worth, sometime in fall 2021, more than a year after the theater was completed in July 2020 as the anchor to The Shops at Chisholm Trail Ranch.
Originally announced in March 2020 just before the start of the pandemic, the theater — located at 5413 Sierra Springs Ln., at the southeast corner of Chisholm Trail Parkway and McPherson Boulevard — opened in August 2020 before closing again in January 2021 due to the lack of new movie releases, the company says.
Now that movies are being released on a regular basis again, they say, audiences will finally have a chance to experience all of the amenities at the new theater, which features 12 screens and over 1,200 luxury leather recliners. As Studio Movie Grill was the originator of the dine-in theater idea, moviegoers will be offered the same in-theater dining experience available at all other locations.
The theater is one of Studio Movie Grill's newer prototypes, featuring a whole new bar design, lowered ceilings, controlled lighting levels, and new kitchen designed for speed and efficiency, time, and motion. It also includes updated auditorium seating as well as other modern furniture, fixtures, equipment touchpoints, and design features.
It is the first location in Fort Worth; there are two other Tarrant County locations in Arlington. All other local Studio Movie Grill locations have already reopened.
