Studio Movie Grill Simi Valley opened its doors to the public tonight at the Simi Valley Town Center and I got to check it out!
The theater is located on the east side of the mall behind the new Buffalo Wild Wings. It is beautiful both inside and out.
There are nine screens in the facility with varying sizes and over 950 seats in total.
When I first saw the seats I thought they didn't look very comfortable. But when I sat down, I realized I was wrong. I usually squirm in movie chairs with my aging hamstrings, but these chairs were very supportive. I also noticed they don't seem to recline too much, but that was also a non-issue for me during the movie.
Each of the stadium style seats have trays and buttons to press for food service. Pretty darn efficient. I ordered a blended margarita and it was excellent. A movie with a margarita, chicken nachos, tasty flatbread, burgers and more. Everything we tried tasted great!
There's a special deal on the menu; $25 for 1 appetizer and two entrees. The price seemed pretty fair to me for the solid quality.
The trays can be maneuvered around to be closer or farther away from you, which was a nice convenience you don't find on, say airline seats. I was also impressed by the extraordinary leg room/distance between rows, allowing for attendants to scoot by without you having to scrunch up into your chair.
There's also a full bar and eating area in the front of the theater. A bit on the loud side in there but it was really buzzing!
My initial assessment is that the Studio Movie Grill Simi Valley will be very successful. Reasonably priced, great service, tasty food, full bar, nicely appointed and comfortable. Larn more and buy tickets at www.studiomoviegrill.com.
