Seminole City Center announces Studio Movie Grill as next major tenant

Set to open in spring 2017, this is the first Pinellas County location for this national company

Seminole, Fla., June 22 – The Seminole City Center continues to add to its list of industry-leading tenants by signing Studio Movie Grill (SMG), an upscale leader in full-service, in-theater dining, as its next major anchor. Studio Movie Grill is scheduled to open in spring 2017, which is also the estimated completion date for the entire Seminole City Center project.

“We are excited to continue our expansion into the Florida market,” said Studio Movie Grill CFO Ted G. Croft. “SMG not only transforms the typical cinema experience, but also offers a community gathering place alongside dinner and a movie. We look forward to meeting our new neighbors and introducing them to our concept.”

Studio Movie Grill is not your average movie theater. It combines affordable, reserved seating with a fresh dining experience. Studio Movie Grill offers an American Grill menu, signature cocktails, spirits and microbrews and provides service throughout the movie.

“Studio Movie Grill brings a level of unique, upscale service to Seminole City Center,” said Jeff Preston, Managing Partner of North American Development Group. “Not only will Seminole residents have a movie theater again, but it will be a theatre experience like they won’t find anywhere else in Pinellas County.”

Studio Movie Grill joins several other well-known companies that have already signed as tenants at Seminole City Center, including: Earth Fare, Ulta, Stein Mart, Bealls, Homegoods, Kirkland’s, LA Fitness, Petco, Hand & Stone Massage, Burger Fi and Pieology. “We are also working to complete several major restaurant deals and hope to announce those exciting names in the near future,” said Preston.

The new Seminole City Center is a joint venture redevelopment of the Seminole Mall by North American Development Group and Primerica Group One. It features a unique design and layout integrating shopping, fitness, dining and entertainment. For more information visit
