Studio Movie Grill (SMG), the original first-run, in-theater dining concept that revolutionized the theater-going experience, will open its 3rd metro Atlanta location on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017. SMG Marietta, located at 40 Powers Ferry Road, is over 49,000 sq. ft. encapsulating 11 dine-in auditoriums totaling 1285 luxury seats, plus high-design public areas, such as a front lounge, premium bar and spacious outdoor patio.
Moviegoers will relax in custom-built Inorca® VIP leather recliners and experience state-of-the-art Dolby sound with NEC laser projection to ensure the most comfortable cinematic viewing. Each theater features built-in tabletops and ‘push for service’ call buttons at your seat to enable guests to order from the full service premium bar and extensive American grill menu. Every SMG theatre, including Marietta, offers 100% reserved seating online and at the box office.
The opening of SMG Marietta marks the company’s 29th location across nine states. SMG’s signature design marries crisp architectural details using natural materials. The interior is modern and features a selective mix of textiles, stone surfaces, warm woods and furniture classics. SMG Marietta’s opening will also unveil the company’s latest concept prototype that includes an open outdoor patio.
“SMG’s new prototype is a marriage of 25 years of in-theater dining expertise and execution,” said Ted Low, Senior Director of Brand + Creative of SMG. “Our trademark design materials are now combined with an open-air bar and lounge area complimenting SMG’s immersive movie-going experience. SMG Marietta is equal parts design, technology and southern hospitality. It’s truly a place to relax, unwind, and have some fun.”
