Movie Buff Theater was shut down. The facility then received a multimillion dollar renovation and reopened as Studio Movie Grill. The renovation included all new audio and digital projeciton systems and a full bar in the lobby. In addition the theater has a full menu of drinks, appetizers, drinks, and entrees.
I’ve been to Movie Buff a few times this year and the experience was decent. The picture and sound quality of the movies is mediocre as compared to newer theaters. The concession stands, the restrooms, and the interior decor have not been upgraded a bit in 20 years and the age is apparent. The ticket and concession prices are lower than the newer theaters and I think it’s a good deal.
This theater needs to be torn down. About twelve years ago College Park expanded from ten to fourteen screens, but since then a dozen other theaters offering stadium seating, digital sound, and Imax have been built in the surrounding area.
I used to work there and I believe that at some point Loews remodeled and split the two massive auditoriums into four smaller ones.
