Studio Movie Grill in Redlands to Fill 30+ Positions
A boost the the Redlands Economy, the conversion to in-theater dining concept and addition of full-service kitchen, bar and lounge area, will create 200 local jobs.
Redlands, CA – Studio Movie Grill is bringing more jobs and visitors to Downtown Redlands. The new Studio Movie Grill Redlands, located at 340 North Eureka Street, is currently working to fill the remaining 30 plus out of 200+ positions. Formerly the Redlands Krikorian Theater, Studio Movie Grill is actively hiring team members and looking to fill a number of hourly positions. Prospective employees are welcome to apply online through the website or in person Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The increase in jobs is expected to impact the local economy in significant ways. Dozens of local construction workers have been working to complete the conversions, which will drive additional traffic to the area. The theater remains open during conversion and now offers food and beverage service.
“The City of Redlands is excited that Studio Movie Grill has chosen to build its newest theater and become part of our wonderful, thriving, and family-friendly city,” said Redlands Mayor Paul Foster. “We’re not only pleased Studio Movie Grill is bringing added jobs and tax revenue, but we know that the in-theater dining concept will help attract even more people to our thriving Historic Downtown. We look forward to enjoying the full experience.”
Studio Movie Grill Redlands will offer an enhanced movie-going experience with Christie Digital projectors, Real D 3D, and Dolby Digital surround sound housed in 14 spacious auditoriums. Each theater will feature custom-made luxury leather recliners by Inorca©, the world’s foremost manufacturer of deluxe, plush leather lounge chairs with individual dining tables and ‘push-for-service’ call buttons.
“We are enormously excited to be converting to concept a traditional and popular downtown theater, and, at the same time, providing our new neighbors with further economic and outreach opportunities,” said Studio Movie Grill Founder and CEO, Brian Schultz. “For Studio Movie Grill , this is about going beyond the fun of seeing a movie and enjoying a meal with friends and family. Part of our mission is to open the hearts and minds of the communities we serve by being an active supporter of the families that live there.”
At the heart of Studio Movie Grill’s mission is the desire to leave a positive wake in the communities it serves. In short, Studio Movie Grill’s role in the community doesn’t stop with entertainment and dining. The Theater already participates in nationwide outreach initiatives including Studio Movie Grill’s legacy Special Needs Screenings and Chefs for Children program, whereby proceeds from select menu items support local non-profits that serve special needs children and their families. In Redlands, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Southern California, is a beneficiary, and the Redlands team has already joined Variety in donating an adaptive bike to a family raising a child with special needs in the city.
The Studio Movie Grill concept has historically proven to be a boon to surrounding retailers as a regional destination, a venue that can provide on-screen advertising 365 days a year, and an increase in customer traffic to nearby establishments.
