DOWNEY — Studio Movie Grill will hire 200 workers for its new Downey cinema location, company officials said in a news release.


Studio Movie Grill took over the Krikorian theater in Downtown Downey earlier this year and is in the midst of a full renovation.


When complete, the Downey theater will feature 10 auditoriums equipped with new digital projectors, Real D 3D and Dolby Digital surround sound. Theatergoers will sit in plush leather lounge chairs with individual dining tables and ‘push-for-service’ call buttons.


“Studio Movie Grill is a fantastic addition to Downtown Downey as it’s bolstering our local economy and generating new jobs, while attracting community members and visitors alike,” said Mayor Sean Ashton. “We look forward to enjoying this unique in-theater dining experience.”


Food and beverage service is anticipated to begin in early December, officials said.


Studio Movie Grill representatives said they plan to hire approximately 200 people for the Downey theater, plus an additional 30 positions for another new location in Monrovia.


Job-seekers can apply on the Studio Movie Grill website or in person Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
