    We wanted to go to the Studio Movie Grill but they never played the movies we wanted to see. Too bad for us northlanders since we kept hearing that it was a nice place.

    My daughter was absolutely CRUSHED on Saturday. She was SO looking forward to going with some friends of ours to see the new Barbie Fashion Fairytale movie on Saturday, when we got the call halfway there from our friend saying that it was closing. She cried because she wanted to see the movie — it broke my heart. I admit the only time we had gone was twice of the Saturday/Sunday kids movies, but I thought it was a GREAT thing for kids!! I wish another Northland theater would pick up the idea. Things like the Barbie and Strawberry Shortcake movies are only available on DVD, so my daughter was thrilled to see them on the big screen!

    SMG did not even come close to comparing to the AMC Mainstreet Theater. Also, I agree with the first post…their movie schedule was always a little iffy and sporadic. Five months though? That seems really fast!

    They closed because of the competition with the AMC on Barry Road. I asked the SMG manager at the ZR location why they never showed new movies when they first arrived in theaters, and he told me that the AMC on Barry had some type of court appointed restrictions on them that prohibited them from showing most of the new releases! I think the AMC on Barry Road knew SMG would be MAJOR competition for them if they showed the same movies they did. After all, wouldn’t you prefer to spend $14 on an actual meal, then on popcorn and a soda? I know I would:)

    HC: I don’t believe that this is anything close to being the case. The movie companies decide if they want to allocate the expense of sending a second print of a movie into a very small area and often they do not. SMG wasn’t major competition for anybody. Did you not read my review of the theaters? It was a mess from the get-go. They tossed out and replaced all 2,000 of the crummy office chair seats they debuted with in a brand new theater one month in. Not exactly the portrait of good planning.
