Multi-task the safe and enjoyable way with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a movie ticket and a soda (up to a $12.74 value) at Studio Movie Grill in Dallas, Arlington, Lewisville, or Plano. 3-D movies may require an additional fee.
Studio Movie Grill takes two of humanity’s favorite seated pastimes— eating and watching movies—and combines them into a cinematic dinner theater. In addition to currently released films, Studio Movie Grill also offers alternative and specialty films, as well as films for kids and families. Check out their full menu and current movies to see how this marriage of delectable diversions could play out.
Though not included, the theater offers a varied menu that spans the grub gamut from appetizers such as tortilla chips and salsa ($4.25) to desserts such as the brownie sundae ($5.99) as well as a selection of sodas, beer, wine, and cocktails.

- The seating at Studio Movie Grill is unusual; swivel chairs are a staple, along with long tables for dining. Couples who arrive early can snag a table for two for a more intimate atmosphere. – Rebecca Simon, Dallas Morning News
- I love the idea of Studio Movie Grill- eating food that's not popcorn and drinking alcoholic drinks while enjoying a movie! – S P., Plano location, 9/9/10, Yelp
Studio Movie Grill
Within Studio Movie Grill's expansive auditoriums, towering screens enrapture audiences seated in plush leather recliners and at dining tables. As the familiar celebrity faces in blockbuster and cult-classic features deliver Oscar-worthy lines, sneakily quiet waiters deliver meals from a full menu decorated with more than 100 items, including gourmet pizzas, smoked ribs, and cocktails infused with the spirit of Daniel Day-Lewis. Bartenders at the lobby bar dole out glasses of premium liquors, wines, and draft beer before and after shows.
