Kansas City’s former Majestic Theater becomes Studio Movie Grill; another due for Atlanta
KANSAS CITY, MO — Located in the Zona Rosa lifesyle center, the former Majestic Theater triplex re-opened on April 1 as the latest operation of the Studio Movie Grill chain based in Dallas. Previously, the theater housed three auditoriums and a comedy club. The number of screens is now eight, all digital, with four 3D capable. Another Studio Movie Grill will open in May in Atlanta.
It’s a movie house geared mostly to grown-ups. No noisy arcade games. No visual busyness — not even movie posters cluttering up the navy blue walls.
“We’re not like other theaters,” said Tearlach Hutcheson, marketing director for the Dallas-based chain, during a recent walk-through. The theater, at 7430 N.W. 87th, is the former home of the Improv comedy club (relocated a block east), the Majestic Theatre and Ted’s Montana Grill.
