Star Cinema Grill Acquires Houston-Area Movie Theater

And announces aggressive growth plans for 2017

MISSOURI CITY, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Star Cinema Grill announced today that it is opening a new location in
Vintage Park, at the site formerly operated by Alamo Drafthouse, making
it their fourth Houston area theater. With this acquisition, Star Cinema
Grill will be adding premium amenities including luxury recliners, push
button service, and an updated modern décor. Sunday marked the last day
of operations as Alamo Drafthouse, and the theater will re-open as Star
Cinema Grill by Friday, December 9th. Star Cinema Grill will
honor all tickets sold for the upcoming release of Rogue One: A Star
Wars Story.

The Houston-based dine-in movie theater chain recently completed two
extensive renovations on existing theaters in Conroe, TX and Naperville,
IL, and will open at least three additional Texas locations in 2017,
including one in the new Century Square development in College Station,
District West at Parkway Lakes in Richmond and Miramesa Town Center in
Cypress. Each of these new locations will feature industry-leading
technology and amenities such as Sony 4K Digital Projection, RealD 3D,
state of the art sound systems, luxury recliner-style seating,
large-format movie screens, and an extensive chef-inspired menu, as well
as a full selection of beer, wine, spirits and hand-crafted cocktails.

“This acquisition comes at a great time for our company and we’re very
excited to expand our footprint in the Houston market, and even though
the theater will no longer be an Alamo Drafthouse, the goal is to retain
all of the great people that work at the Vintage Park location, as well
as continue to host special events and screenings whenever possible,”
says John Walsh, Vice President of Operations. “We look forward to
doubling our number of locations over the next twelve months, and
getting to share our premium movie going experience with as many guests
as possible.”

Star Cinema Grill will have at least six locations in the greater
Houston area by the end of 2017, making it the largest dine-in theater
chain in the city. The company is focused on adding additional locations
through acquisitions and new construction, as well as developing and
establishing new and exciting concepts under the Star Cinema Grill
