Moviegoers are encouraged to purchase their tickets and order food through the SMG mobile app.

Before the reopening, Studio Movie Grill offers tickets for $ 5 for all screenings. Tickets for children and seniors cost $ 3.

Studio Movie Grill will also widen the gap between showtimes to allow for greater cleaning.
